Grateful and excited to have a poem, Rendezvous at Crater Lake, in the recent issue of literary magazine The Esthetic Apostle. Click here to read.

Though it was years ago now, some might remember the embryonic antecedent of this poem workshopped on the sphere. In any event, your feedback improved it way back then as well as provided the basis of my more recent revamp.

Thanks for your help,

Erik

Thank you, Andrew. This piece means a lot to me, and it means a lot to hear that from one such as yourself.

Thanks, Aaron P. I figured someone might remember that draft from way back when. This poem came together by degrees; I was never fully satisfied with it until I was. Glad that you enjoy it.

Best,
Erik
