What’s New, Two Haiku-and a Misspelling

The renowned poet Sonia Sanchez is curating the Peace is a Haiku Song project of the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program. If you like to write haiku, you may want to check this out and contribute.

I went to college in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. So for old time’s sake, I sent in a couple of haiku to the website. To find them, scroll down, click “See More,” scroll down till you reach the poems posted on September 14, 2012.

Unfortunately, I am identified as “Mary Kane Drerr” and the misspelling has yet to be corrected. While my three names are subject to many different entertaining errors of dislocation and transposition, this one is new. Which, incidentally, rhymes with “haiku.”

I’m in the Current Issue of Wordgathering: A Journal of Disability Poetry

My two short poems “Special Education” and “Umpteenth Puncture” appear in the September 2012 issue of Wordgathering: A Journal of Disability Poetry.


Enjoy? Yes.

The lives of us human beings with disabilities are not matters of unmitigated misery and suffering. Like anybody else’s.
