News and Upcoming Events!

I am excited to share that I am participating in Tupelo Press’ 30/30 challenge!

I write a poem every day of the month (for the month of February) as a way of fundraising for this incredible press!  To follow along with my poems, click here.

To donate and request a poem about a color of your choosing, click here.

Here is a sample poem to whet your appetite:

 

Gold

Yes.  More.  Everything bright and needed.

I’ve been looking at rings, stacked

with emeralds and diamonds and flecks

of opal.  I have rings already.

And I have bread dragged in oil

and I have coffee turned pale with cream

and sugar and I have my forearms turned

up as I drive so I can watch my veins

in the early morning light when my daughter

says, it dark out?  it not dark out yet?
