An Illo for Abuelo

I severely dislike the term "illo," by the way. Yuck! It suggests the full word is "illostration." That's just foolosh!

Anyway, Lexicon Polaroid is an upstart poetry journal publishing original art and poetry side by side, emphasizing an interplay between pictures and words. Poems are screened and chosen, then delegated to artists for a visual interpretation. How fun!

Here's my submission—still pending an OK—based on Kyle Moreno's poem, "Abuelo Looks at the Stars Without Glasses." Seems good to go to me! I'll keep you posted on further developments.
