From the diary: “Saturday November 23, 1985
“Today the issue of Blue Unicorn with my poem in it finally came. Been a year and a half since they accepted ‘Chaos in a Meadow Turned Cornfield’. But it’s sure nice to see in print. Though I’m ambivalent about the poem.”
The poem is in rhyming couplets (mostly). It’s a bit on the cute side. I wrote it in high school.
The UC Berkeley library had a subscription to Blue Unicorn. When I finally transferred to Cal it was fun to find one of my poems in the collection.
