Three of my poems are up in Hedge Apple’s “Mix Tape” issue!

Over the last weeks I’ve had three poems related to music published in an evolving themed issue from Hedge Apple Magazine – the “Mix Tape Issue.” The faculty and students at Hagerstown Community College, where this publication is based, have done such a cool job curating this issue. Each poem is enhanced by a visual and paired with a song inspired by the poem (and chosen by the editors). I’m so happy with the choices they made for my poems “A New Song” (paired with Plini’s “Every Piece Matters”); “Soundtrack for Growing Up” (paired with “Cemetry Gates” by The Smiths); and “Avian Envy” (paired with “Carolyn’s Fingers” by Cocteau Twins). Of course I used to make mix tapes (as if my life depended on it, for love & friendship, to dance or sob to, when crushing, to share favorite songs with favorite people, as a way to define myself, to convey secrets…) so it’s been fun to have them come back into my life in this new way.
