Rattle 83 published Tan-Ku

I am pleased to share that Rattle, a well-known American poetry magazine, has published in the Collaboration section in its latest volume (83) a new Tan-Ku titled "Hubris," co-authored by Ms. Deborah P. Kolodji and myself.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the editor, Mr. Tim Green.

Thank you very much.
