My writing rewards are mainly self satisfying, just occasionally all that pen to paper brings something else, and having one of my poems published comes very high on that list. I wrote Handed Down during Tamar Yoseloff's (http://invectiveagainstswans.tumblr.com/) great 'poetry and the visual' on-line Poetry School (http://www.poetryschool.com) course from, I think, a picture of an old woman who had hands that were full of personality!
So Handed Down is in Issue 11 of Prole, you can buy this from the website and follow, like, read more about Prole from all these links

Thank you, Brett and Phil, for choosing my poem, just what I need to write more and, especially, to send out what becomes written.
