LUPO contributor Nancy Bailey Miller (Issue 34 and forthcoming) posted the link to her poem “Obituary,” a lament on the death of cursive writing, on her Face Book page.  Seeing “Obituary: Nancy Bailey Miller,” her niece immediately responded to the post in horror. “Are you OK, Aunt Nancy?”  Not only is the poet in good health, but “Obituary” appears in her sixth volume of poetry, Tacking Lessons, published by Cheshire Press and just released July, 2016. Tacking Lessons may be purchased at or for $14.95
