But I'm still an Embryo with a Long, Long Way to Go


Embryo Concepts' latest issue "Guilty Pleasures" is out now. My poem Blunderland is in it. Depending where you work, it might not be safe. If so, it's probably the first time I've published anything controversial in that vein. Otherwise, it might give you some ideas of how to survive this blasted quarantine.

No, I Don't Have a Cat, Yes Read My Poem About One Anyway

Poetry Life and Times, an offshoot of ArtVilla published a poem of mine with a feline character. My original source of inspiration wasn't real life, so much as a picture of a couch in a book about interior design. 

Oh no, my secret is out!

Part of a Joyous Mosaic


Thanks to Mosaic here is a poem of mine that appeared in their most recent issue. I hope it is clear enough. I originally took a picture of it on my phone but unfortunately you can't add images from your phone (or anywhere else) onto this site directly. I don't know why Blogger is so anti-Mobile. I guess it's still 2002 over at HQ. So I emailed to myself, downloaded it to my laptop, and pasted it here. If there are any issues viewing it, blame the people who created this platform. You have a dozen different fonts to choose from on the mobile version, but no option to add images. Go figure.

The Luck of Submitting to the Irish


The second issue of Beir Bua journal is out with my poem "Accordion Grimes" in it. Open the PDF to read it. In case you're wondering, Beir means "bring" and Bua means "victory, talent, or virtue."
