I was trolling the internet a month or so ago when I discovered that I’d had a poem published and I didn’t know it. It is in a journal called Ars Medica that used to be in print format but is now online only. I kept waiting to receive the print one and didn’t realize it would never come until I saw this and contacted the editor.
This poem is in response to interviewing a couple of moms who have sons with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy. But for anyone whose child suffers a rare illness for which there is a gene mutation, I think you can relate. And for those with healthy children, I hope it provides a different perspective.
