In the Winter 2013 issue of M. Scott Douglass’ Main Street Rag, I have a poem titled “unsupposed to rain on Bolaño.” I’ve been reading Main Street Rag since before I left North Carolina; the perfect-bound literary journal publishes out of Charlotte and anchors a vibrant poetry community in the Queen’s city. I’m honored that Douglass selected “unsupposed to rain” — it is a difficult and theoretical poem — for the first issue of the journal’s 18th year of publication. Main Street Rag is a print-only journal, so I encourage you to purchase a copy and support a great literary magazine.
“unsupposed to rain on Bolaño” considers the relationship between language and cartography. It is one of a number of poems through which I am exploring how maps work. More to come.
**And if you are already a reader/subscriber to Main Street Rag, make sure you see Scott’s note in this month’s newsletter about a computer crash the office suffered. He would like readers to get in touch if they did not receive the most recent newsletter; it may be that your email address was lost in the crash.**
