New work in Eye to the Telescope, In Parentheses

Hello, All,

I’m delighted to share that my poem, “The Sea Shares Her Origin Story” found a home in Eye to the Telescope 42, an issue devoted entirely to the sea and edited by Akua Lezli Hope. It’s an honor to appear in pages alongside her, Christina Sng, and other brilliant modern speculative poets. You can peruse the table of contents below, and the full issue is open access and located here.

I’m also fortunate to have two poems appearing this month in In Parentheses 7.2: “On Dying” and “Reverie.” I love that these poems appear together because while both are meditations, they couldn’t be wider apart in terms of tone and style; it’s like a little snapshot of my “dark and twisty with a side of hope” core. Check out the gorgeous cover art by GJ Gillsepie below, and score a copy of the issue here.

As always, I appreciate your support and hope you enjoy these poems.
