Willowdown Books published “Click,” in their Poetic Bond VIII print issue last year here: “Click” in Poetic Bond VIII. .
This was a fun collaboration between the editor and me. I submitted the poem and the editor liked it, but felt the second stanza should be numbered and have a title.
I had originally written this as a short story, then a poem, then a short story introduced by a poem. How it ended up is quite different, although I do have a poem “left over” and a complete short story as well, both needing a home. I wrote the short story, “Click,” during a writing workshop a few years ago and it was probably one of the best short stories I have ever written.
I do like the resulting poem! All are my words, but some of the words were moved around and we did add the numbered and titled second stanzas.
Thanks for reading!
