A few months ago, via email, Scott Hightower sent me his poem, “The Young Man Holding an Empty Glass,” accompanied by a nineteenth century painting and his translation in Spanish. Last week in the mail—or was it two weeks ago?—Ron Kolm sent me his poem, “Death is a Soldier,” with a painting by Karen Neuman. Earlier this year, I finished a sonnet postcard with a drawing by Akram, and thought it would be fun to add all three here. Enjoy.
