Last Call for Poems

Okay, so I haven’t written anything here for a long time, but my mother Bonnie Mutchler passed away recently. That’s the subject for another blog, but anyway our friend and fellow poet DM Yates came up with the idea of doing a memorial poetry collection for her, and publishing it for free on Smashwords (who will then distribute it to Apple, B&N, etc.) I’m not going to pretend I have a name for this bad boy yet, so if you have any title ides let me know.
