Writing Published in 2017

Dear Readers,

it’s been quite the year! I had a poetry chapbook picked up for publication (due out in February 2018, and which you can pre-order here!) and I also have had poetry and fiction in some amazing journals!

I thought I’d collect it all in one place, because I am helpful like that (and also because I enjoy making lists; but, really, who doesn’t??). When pieces are available online (for free), I’ve linked them!

It tastes like tin
the chocolate cut with metallic

no tin

I’m sorry I never told you
I’m sorry I told you
I’m sorry I didn’t tell you everything

When you kissed me
all the colors drained from the room
I watched them pool onto the floor
and there was only you left
bright, bright
as the forest fire

                        I don’t remember
I don’t remember what her name was
I don’t remember the color of his eyes

I couldn’t breathe
that summer when a cold
slipped into my lungs
heavy as the humid-air
my mother, she pressed
cold washcloths to my forehead

Help yourself
Help me, I’m looking for this book
It tastes sweet
on my tongue
sweet molasses
rich, bleeds between
my teeth

Please I’m sorry
Please I don’t remember
Please help

in the window
the light bleeds
in around you
and you

Over at Nerds of a Feather, for our series of DYSTOPIAN VISIONS, I got the chance to write about dystopia, violence, and writing with my friend (and very awesome rhetorician) Philippe Meister. This is a discussion that I gained a ton from and was a great experience writing together. So, dearest readers, if you’re interested, I’d love for you to check it out here!
