One of my poems appears in the current edition of Spank the Carp. Check it out!

The first draft of Canyon was written in the Durham Public Library during a session of the Poetry Factory lead by JeanMarie when she had us list various geographical features then write about one of them. It was also JeanMarie who suggested I turn it into a shape poem and now it’s published. Thanks, JM!
