It’s time for another new link! I have added Hospital Drive, a literary journal affiliated with the University of Virginia School of Medicine. I love this journal, not only for my UVA nostalgia but also for the depth and variety of creative work on the themes of illness and healing.
They have included one of my poems Furniture Magazine in their summer issue. This was written in response to receiving a catalogue in the mail full of glossy photos of home interiors. I was struck by the juxtaposition with the stack of medical journals I usually receive and, even more so, by the contrast between my experience of human reality and this idealized artificial world.
