Now in its 25th year, Salamander magazine is an exquisite, highly respected literary journal that publishes poetry, fiction, and reviews. The aesthetics are breathtaking. Issue 43 has poems from a wide range of writers, including Bosnia-born writer Vedran Husić (“My poor tattered country. / My poor ragged tongue”) and Nigerian poet Nebeolisa Okwudili (“I saw butterflies / come to our window like paper come alive / by the act of an ignorant longing”). I’m honored to have a poem included in this wonderful collection.
