I love this poem: “Giving Up the Dew” comes from my unpublished chapbook Back Holler Magic, which is finished and submitted to a few publishers, even as I write more poems for it, lol.
I can’t thank Alien Magazine enough for publishing this poem. It’s traveled through many versions and forms, but its story, interior struggle and dark magic have remained the same.
My byline-busy August 2019 wrapped up with three more poems debuting.
“Doubt” and “Spell for Which I Had No Use” appeared over at Pidgeonholes.
“Vascularity” appeared in the latest issue of Impossible Archetype.
Three very different poems, from three different projects.
Chelsea Station, a digital “magazine devoted to gay literature,” published a short poem of mine this month. “Visiting from Ohio” was inspired by the ease with which men in New York look at you on the street compared to other parts of the country and what that look might actually mean in the long run of your romantic life.
Two prose poems debut over at Homology Lit today, kicking off a busy August! Missing Things and Be a Good Boy started as hillbilly magic poems, but eventually metamorphosed into other, more splendid creatures.
Many thanks to Homology for giving these kids a home!
Issue #19 of Riggwelter arrived today. I have a new poem and a new short story inside.
“Spell for Men Who Lay Hands” is on page 52.
“Disown Me Three Times” begins on page 36. Very nice to write and share fiction again after many years of only writing poems.
You can read the entire issue in vivid full screen over at Riggwelter’s Issuu site.
Check out the latest edition of Rappahannock Review for a new poem titled “August Aubade” and an interview with yours truly.
