Later this spring, one of my tiny poems will appear as part of blood orange's extraordinary poetry tarot. I spoke with blood orange editor katie o'brien about reading (both books and cards), writing, and that most stressful of questions: What are you working on now?

Two Lost Poems in Doubleback Review

Ripples on a dark sea

My poems "Amaryllis" and "The Death of the Lobster" were both first published a few years ago. Then the magazines in which they appeared went under, and the poems disappeared.

I am very happy to report that both poems have been excavated and republished by the brand-new Doubleback Review, which specializes in doing precisely this thing.

Read the poems here.

One Poem in Rogue Agent

The first half of the year was slow, publication-wise, but it's shaping up to be a busy autumn.

My poem "Neuropathy" is out today in Rogue Agent. 

A content warning: this piece contains themes of assault and traumatic dissociation.

You can read the poem here.
