Lovely, in these very dark days of almost winter (headlights required at 8:30 a.m.) to find that my work has been published in two online journals: two pieces in Issue 12 of Juke Joint and two in Issue 8.4 of Star 82 Review, here and here. Thanks to the editors of these journals for muscling ahead in spite of the odds and for taking a chance on found poetry.

Bracken: corona hopelings

The wonderful literary journal Bracken has, since early April, offered an occasional series called corona hopelings. Here’s their definition of hopelings: “birds that live in the middle of your chest and feel things most acutely. Hopelings are migratory birds and travel regularly to Hope, no matter the distance. Corona hopelings are a mutated species of hopelings born out of response to coronavirus.” I am hugely honored that editor Alina Rios has selected three of my found poems for publication.
(If you enjoy them, I hope you’ll click on the little red heart at the bottom of the Bracken page!)

Petrichor

The word petrichor refers to the fragrance of first rain on dry ground. Petrichor is also a journal of text and image, and I am very grateful they have selected two of my found poems for Issue 15.
