Coming Soon
Coming Soon
a terminally tanned
island transplant
with a glassy eye
who claimed he once
worked for Streisand
asked us for 80 cents
he said he was hit
by an ambulance
right there on Front Street
right in the road where
we were standing --
3 lawyers were
chasing him


About the author: 
Wanda Morrow Clevenger  wrote eight poems in a handful of months in 1974; thirty-four years later she returned to writing.  She has since placed over 467 pieces of work in 158 print and electronic literary journals and anthologies.

In August of 2013, while compiling the manuscript for this book she fell ill with pancreatitis, further complicated by necrosis in the following nine months, and wasn’t expected to survive.  One year later, almost to the day, she sat down to finish "where the hogs ate the cabbage."  

She has her husband to
thank for the title.
