Good Reader-
I couldn’t be happier about all your subscriptions, views and likes down here at Going For The Throat.  I’d like to offer you a couple poems today, brought to you by the wonderful Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review.  I’ve felt on board with them as soon as I submitted.  I heard from their editor the very next day and she has even linked up Going For The Throat on their Facebook page.
These two were written together on one of the first days of the year.  They’re about travel, as allot of my stuff is these days.
I’m booking Houston, Philadelphia, NYC and Boston.  And I’m reading and performing right here in Austin 4 times next week.  September will get a second pressing as soon as I get a few kinks out.  Hope to see you this summer.
Please enjoy two of my poems today, “passage” and “oxbloods ‘neath the cuff“, featured on page 146 of this Spring’s FLAR.  Dig around.  There’s allot of power and talent in this issue.
Yours,
Jim Trainer

Dear Jim,

Congratulations! Our literary panel would like to publish “Oxbloods ‘neath the Cuff” and “Passage” in the spring edition of FLAR. “Memo From The Crematorium Desk” is still under consideration by our panel, and I will let you know as soon as I am able whether they will publish it, too. Thank you for sharing your work with us. I will be in touch closer to May about publication.

Best,
With gratitude,
A.E. Bayne
Editor in Chief
