I’m so honored to have another poem published on Bending Genres. This one is about the Brady Bunch, and, oh, how the grass can be greener. I wrote this when I was 25. It was rejected plenty, but I recently sent it out and got lucky. Also, see my page about Toby and Lady, a Zuihitsu piece, and “Not on the Railroad Tracks.” They published another poem last year about grief and clothes. I’m so fortunate to have had my work embraced by the wonderful Bending Genres community. Writing, submitting, and getting rejected continually can be wearing and even demoralizing, so I am so very grateful for the handful of journals (including Bending Genres) who have supported my work, and, at times, me during COVID and all of the other difficult circumstances I have survived in recent years.
