Our “Poem of the Week” is a preview of the summer issue of 3rd Wednesday, now at the printer.  It’s one of three winning poems from the 3rd edition of our popular “One Sentence Poetry Contest”.  It’s the second win for Michigan poet, Jane Wheeler, who can pack a lot of story into a single sentence.
