My new poem “Wish” is up at the Plath Poetry Project!

I have a new poem published in the third October retrospective of the Plath Poetry Project. My poem “Wish” is written after Plath’s “Stopped Dead,” composed by her on October 19, 1962. Reading her poem led me to thinking about the cruelty of children, and the way we bumble so badly though our relations with the opposite sex at times, especially when the idea of bodies, and sex, is something we are bred to be ashamed of, or uncomfortable around. I also tried to answer Plath’s question, a little, when she asks in her poem, “Is it a penny, a pearl— / Your soul, your soul?”
