Sometimes less is more. Sometimes I can’t believe in language. But all that really matters is the pencil, the brush, and this moment. Check out some of my other crossword poems and art in my blog. You can also navigate by the categories. Thanks for visiting.

Very happy to have poems in Chiron Review 124. Love this cover art. Chiron is a 40+ year-old lit mag publishing writers like Marge Piercy, Lyn Lifshin and Charles Bukowski. It was created by Michael Hathaway in 1981 and was published in a tabloid format, as many journals were then. I’m so thrilled to be in this cool journal and published alongside people like Lyn Lifshin who inspired me when I was young. Toby Aflier, Jeff Aflier, and Alexis Rhone Fancher are also in this issue. I thought I was slated for the spring issue, so it was a nice surprise to see this pop up on social yesterday. More updates soon. I’m behind in these announcements.
Very honored to have this poem, which has had a hard life, in Prelude Magazine. It’s called “Slippery Gods, Not Things” and, well, you just need to click and read it. More art coming soon. Promise. And maybe I’ll even get some up to sell in the near future.
Happy to have a second poem published in Rat’s Ass Review on 10-27-2021. This issue is full of great writers and has a lovely cover (I’ll update this when I’m not so tired). Read it here, and, of course, here’s an album cover, although I fear I soon won’t have time to make these, half-assed as they might be. Also, check out this other post that includes Cherry Tomatoes in Singing Bowl (the other poem published by Rat’s Ass Review) or just read the poem on their site. Lots of good things happening in October. Peace.
