New Ohio Review published in April, The Good Life in their exclusive online edition of 2020. This poem was singled out by the Editor, Dave Wanczyk, for inclusion in their "Animal" themed online edition. Dave Wanczyk explained his choosing the poem by saying "the last line of the poem is very surprising and, though straightforward, packs a complex punch".
