My poem in SPIDER

This week I received a very welcome email: the folks at SPIDER have accepted a poem of mine for the "inventions" theme issue. My poem is about a wonderful invention that will change the world . . . as soon as the inventor figures out what it does.


The "bug" magazines include Babybug, Ladybug, Spider, Cricket, and Cicada. I've been in Ladybug, and I've been in Cricket, but this is my first poem to be taken by SPIDER. I hope it won't be my last!
