Poetry friends, our great new collection of poems by Kansas Poets, Kansas Time+Place: An Anthology of Heartland Poetry (2017, Little Balkans Press, Roy Beckemeyer and Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Co-editors) is now up at Amazon correctly listed as available through Amazon rather than third-party sellers. Also, it is available through Amazon Prime, so if you subscribe to Prime you get the book at list price of $20 and save on postage. One-hundred-sixty poems by 86 poets, 234 (xiv+218) pages - Stephen Meats had this to say: "Very handsome volume with a substantial and particularly satisfying heft to it."
Just in time for holiday gifting. Get yours now.

Pleased to have five of my poems on the on-line literary magazine The Syzygy Poetry Journal. Link to them here: https://fulguria.wordpress.com/2016/04/04/roy-beckemeyer/

“Skull of Sirius, Crossbones of Cassiopeia” is a sci-fi sort of a poem. “The Chase” a sort of mythological one, with Orion and the canids chasing the moon across the sky. “Daylight’s Starring Role” is a sort of extended metaphor, with the arrival of dawn the lifting of a stage curtain. “Sunset” imagines the setting sun seen through a fluttering dragonflies wings and stretches that image into some other but related metaphoric ones. “Magisterial Moon” is a sort of adult nursery rhyme personification of the Moon and Sun.
Hope you enjoy.
