More good news! 

My poem "Cockfight" appeared in the Spring 2010 Issue of Inkwell Journal. I am pleased to inform you that Dell Smith of The Review Review has written an article titled, "Weaving a Cultural Tapestry" in praise of this issue of Inkwell. 

My poem "Cockfight" is specifically mentioned in the piece, in a highly complimentary manner. 

An excerpt from the official review reads:  

"...Maria Nazos’ poem "Cockfight" offers sweet, humid sights and signals from Havana, of useless roosters who start their wakeup call at 4 am, and are faced off in fights so that “the russet, sun-flecked feathers erupt like pieces of forgotten sun against the dark.” The narrator compares these fighting roosters to the men in her neighborhood: “Men who escaped the draft’s cold hands, thank god, but still don’t have the sense to see a swift kick to the ribs.” Whether rooster or man, “every morning, there is always reason to sing.”
