Utterly thrilled to win first place in the Wergle Flomp Humor Poetry contest this year. The poem, My Therapist Sez, was published in Diode Poetry last year and is the only poem with papaya salad, kundalini awakenings, multiple therapy sessions, and trick or treating in it. Adam Cohen and Jendi Reiter have been absolutely wonderful to work with, and they even engaged me to illustrate the poem. Check it out along with the other amazing winning poems on their site.
Bending Genres just released their 22nd issue online with an eclectic mix of work. Happy to have a poem titled, “The Unbearable Inertia of Clothes” published. It includes divination, cane toads, the Tazmanian Devil, and musty clothes. Below is an excerpt, but read the entire thing (plus other interesting work) on their site.
Happy to have three poems in Anti-Heroin Chic today, one of my favorite journals that are building a publishing community around inclusivity and healing. These poems come with a content warning (abuse). What do Flint children, rockin’ motorcycle dude-dads, and white trash, small-town losers have in common? Well, this poet. Read them here and check out a slew of other interesting writing.
Thrilled to have a piece in the latest issue of San Pedro River Review, “The Opt-out Mother,” an austere piece about ubiquitous mother energy, loss, and well, I won’t spoil it for you. There are lots of great writers and photographers in here, including Marge Piercy. I hate to be swoony, but it’s kind of surreal to be living in the same pages as some of my heroes.
