New updates on 3 Cha contributors: John McKernan, Ricky Garni and Shivani Sivagurunathan

John McKernan and Ricky Garni

John McKernan and Ricky Garni have new poems published in the Summer 2012 issue of Otis Nebula. John’s “Maybe” is a list poem with each line beginning with… you guessed it… ‘maybe’. I like ‘Maybe every number in the universe is contained within the number 1’ most. How about you? Ricky’s “Ceres” tells us about a boxer named… you guessed it… ‘Ceres’ (but is this his real name?). The poem also reminds us that planets that are barely discernible ‘still cast a shadow’ (but are we really talking about planets?). 
|| John McKernan’s poetry was published in Issue #15 of Cha and is forthcoming in the June 2012 issue.  His poem“We Used Chalk” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize 2012.  
|| Ricky Garni’s poetry was published in Issue #16 of Cha.
