• My poem “Ball & Chain” is up at Plath Poetry Project!

    I have a poem up once again at the Plath Poetry Project! My poem “Ball & Chain” is in response to Plath’s poem “Thalidomide.” In her poem, I was drawn to the adjective “spidery,” and to the language of spilled mercury, termination, and violent birth. I also really like her phrase “to carpenter a space”; there’s something powerful about the idea of creating room, physically or mentally or emotionally, though both her poem and mine are ultimately more destructive than creative.

  • My poem “Fawn” is featured in #MeToo online quarterly edition of MER VOX!

    My poem “Fawn” is up at the MER VOX folio, the Mom Egg Review’s online quarterly, assembled around a given theme for each season. The winter 2017 edition was curated beautifully, as always, by Jennifer Colella Martelli and Cindy Veach. This issue is representing the #MeToo movement, and I couldn’t be more honored to lend my voice to the mix of other voices telling our individual yet collective stories.
