Record fires are sweeping throug the Western United States.
National political conventions are failing to set fire to
anyone but the party faithful. And so it goes.
It's been a cool summer in New England, a little warmer
Someday I'll think of something better to write here
than the weather report!
Anyway, good poems this month, and a really excellent
piece under "Featured Artist Review". Enjoy.
