More August & September thank-you notes:

I’d like to thank Dale Wisely, editor of Right Hand Pointing, for allowing me to guest-edit Right Hand Pointing Issue 78: Variations on Absence, and each of the contributors in this issue for entrusting me with their words.

I’d also like to thank John Murphy, editor at The Lake, for publishing two more of my Nigerian childhood poems “Polishing” and “Influence”) in the September 2014 issue.
