Published in Cities: A Book of Poems

Leah had two poems, ““Not in my backyard” is something only someone else can say” and “Autumn on Oak Street,” published in Chuffed Buff Books’ poetry anthology about cities, Cities: A Book of Poems. Chuffed Buff Books is an awesome independent press across the pond that found a home for these two poems about Boston in this collection that “places the urban landscape at its core; explores the city as a microcosm of humanity; and shows art, culture, history, civic pride, solidarity, relationships, memory, and the rich fabric of city life through the eyes of residents, migrants, and tourists.” Leah’s first poem featured is about the April 2013 bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line, and her second poem is about saying goodbye to her Boston street of three years for a cross-country move to the Bay Area.
