Default "The Point" in NDQ

The memorial poem for my father, "The Point," was published today in a brief announcement at NDQ (that's North Dakota Quarterly). My thanks to everyone who helped me whip that poem rapidly into shape: https://ndquarterly.org/2018/01/11/r...on-poochigian/

Both those who knew him and those who didn't will appreciate that fine tribute, Aaron. Glad to see that the poem has a new opportunity to reach an audience comprised of both.

Thank you, Nausheen and Julie. That poem means a lot to me, and I am glad it found its proper home.

I love this, Aaron, and I imagine the man who inspired it would be supremely pleased. It's quite a feat to have anything at all new to say about the unfathomable, and the poem manages to be both tragic and comic. Congratulations!

This is lovely, Aaron. I'm reminded that Julian of Norwich saw the whole creation in a point.
