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.)

Entropy (again!)


I am enormously pleased that Entropy: The Birds has published three of my found-bird poems along with a wonderful photo of a juvenile Magnificent Frigatebird by Joe Meche Photography. Thank you, Entropy, and thank you, Joe!

(Entropy, which is a thoughtful and valuable literary resource, previously published two other found-bird poems of mine.)

Miracle Monocle

Thank you to Sarah Anne Strickley and the editorial staff at Miracle Monocle for featuring three of my found poems in Issue 14, produced in the midst of shutdowns and many inconveniences.

new poem

Sometimes poems get accepted by a journal and then are published with no further fanfare. Just discovered that my poem “Paying Attention” was quietly published in E.Ratio Poetry Journal, issue 29. Who needs fanfare? Very grateful.

and yet again…

Kind of surprising when the announcements come in one after the other, but I’m willing to accept it as gifts of auspicious beginnings for 2020. Thanks to Young Ravens Literary Review, which has published two of my found-raven poems in issue 11.

That’s Dayna Patterson’s “Heart Beet” on the cover. Swoon.
