This week I have the pleasure of having my poem “Witch’s Teeth” up at Piker Press.

The kind folks at M 58 Poetry also saw fit to publish three of my darlings: “Rene Magritte, Empire of Lights, 1949,” “This is My Waterloo,” and “The Arsonist.”

Thank you for taking the time to read my work. Be sure to stumble around both Piker Press and M 58 Poetry for other great work. Discover something new. Be kind. Support small press.

It is my distinct honor to have a poem included in the June 2021 issue of Anti-Heroin Chic. There are some amazing poets in this issue that really blew my mind with their raw truth and story telling skills. There is powerful work in this issue. You can read my poem “A Poem for the Lost Poems” here. But definitely check out Victoria Ruiz, Krys Walls, and Carrie Elizabeth Penrod.
