Entropy: The Birds

I am always thrilled when Entropy: The Birds accepts my work for publication. Today, they’ve published three of my found-bird poems along with a gorgeous raven photo by Joe Meche. (There’s a little heart below the poems and bio. If you like the poems, I’d be hugely grateful if you’d click it. Thanks.)

Lammergeier

Very pleased to have a found poem, night, in Issue 9 of Lammergeier.

(The high-mountain-dwelling lammergeier, also known as Bearded Vulture, Gypaetus barbatus, is held sacred by Tibetans, has a 9-foot wingspan, and eats primarily bones, which it drops from a great height to reveal the delicious marrow.)

found poem: dawn

tonight.

Should you find yourself otherwise unengaged this evening, Friday, March 26, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific, Zoom on over to RASP, the Redmond Association of Spokenword, where I’ll be holding forth as the evening’s featured poet. On offer will be some found poems and some conventional-form poems, plus some conversation and a chance to share your own poem(s) during the open-mic portion of the evening. Please join me! (Zoom link here.)

One Sentence Poems

I love the online journal One Sentence Poems and am very grateful when they publish one of mine, including “It’s open,” which has just appeared. (Links to others in the sidebar at left.)

The Inflectionist Review

As promised, yet another poem published: “Lesson” appears in Issue 12 of The Inflectionist Review, edited by John Sibley Williams and A. Molotkov, and alongside numerous poets whose work I admire. Very grateful.

Claw & Blossom

After a quiet spell in February, it looks like there’s a little run of new publications showing up. Very happy to have my poem “Cabin” published in Issue 8 of Claw & Blossom.

Riddle with Arrows

In assembling the pandemic issue of Riddled with Arrows, editor Shannon Connor Winward created a choose-your-own-route-through-the-7-stages-of-isolation experience that begins on the RwA 4.1 page and allows you to meander through related batches of writing. My found poem appears on the Scavenge for food page and I’m honored to be along on the adventure.
