One of Martin Elster's recent poems, workshopped here, was up yesterday at The New Verse News:

Congratulations, Martin!

Many thanks, Julie and Rick, for your comments and suggestions while the poem was being workshopped at Met.

I like the "cousin" tweak near the end, which wasn't in the version I saw. Congrats, Martin!

Thanks, Julie. Your feedback and suggestions while this was being workshopped were quite helpful. I'm glad you like "cousin." I think that one word changes the character of the whole poem. We are all cousins on this pale blue dot.
