‘Picnic’ on The Five-Two


National Poetry Month has been celebrated in American during April since 1996. I am delighted to contribute to this literary event with the publication of my poem ‘Picnic’ on The Five-Two website. Edited by Gerald So, The Five-Two posts a daily crime fiction poem during April. By clicking here, you can read the poem and hear an audio recording  by Paula Messina.
