“Since the Advent of the Fisher King” in Cooper Street - February 9, 2015

Check out the second issue of Cooper Street Journal for a decidedly odd poem of mine wherein Cleveland in the 1990s kinda resembles England in the 60s, at least so far as haircuts go. Fans of Rocky movies, syllabics, Arthurian legends, and The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (the 1962 film more than the 1959 novella) may also be amused. This one dates back to the 2008 or so, and has found a belated home. My thanks to the editors at Cooper Street.
