Please join poets Gregory Luce, Katherine E. Young, Leeya Mehta, Serena Agusto-Cox, Donald Illich and myself for a Poetry Reading and Open Mic at Chesapeake Framing and Art Gallery in Downtown Crown in Gaithersburg, MD–June 11, 3-5 pm.
Many thanks to Ground Fresh Thursday for including two of my poems, A Contemplation of Succulence in Sonora, and End/Beginning, in the latest issue of their print journal.
Many thanks to Indolent Books for publishing my poem, Beautiful Children as part of their What Rough Beasts series. The poem was written in response to our fearless leader’s statement that he bombed Syria because of the alleged chemical weapons attacks on “beautiful children”. If saving beautiful children is our litmus test for bombing attacks, we might want to start at home. Read the poem.
