Poem Reprinted

Today I got my comp copy of Stages 10, which is a Norwegian textbook for English as a second language, reprinting my poem "Origami Emotion."  Full-color, lovely layout, with multiple sensory modes engaged and different subjects woven together.  Gorgeous, spectacular, Platonic ideal of what a textbook should be.  I am all the more flattered for having been invited into it.

*sigh* But it also makes me terribly envious.  On this side of the pond, people are trying to put Noah's goddamn ark into history and science textbooks, and most experts decline to consult on textbooks due to the egregious rate of inaccuracy.  This is why we can't have nice things.  >_<
