My poem, view from the immortal turnpike, was published in Uppagus, Issue 12

I’m so happy to announce that my poem, view from the immortal turnpike, was published in Uppagus, Issue 12 this month.

The issue “as a whole is an ode to nostalgia” (per the editors). Who says that nostalgia is a useless emotion?

For how can it be useless when it is so powerful an undertow?

My poem, Red Shift, was published in Dark Matter Journal

My poem, Red Shift, was published in Dark Matter Journal (Issue 6 - February 2015) 

http://darkmatterjournal.org/2015/02/issue-6-is-now-online.html

My poem is on p.8  

“The reason the siren slides is because it doesn't hit you.”

The above quote in my poem should be attributed to Astronomer John Dobson. The footnote was erroneously omitted. 

About Dark Matter Journal:

Dark Matter is a blog for speculative literature. Dark Matter refers to the unknown particles suggested by the Standard Model to explain observations of gravity which cannot be accounted for by observable matter and energy. It could also be considered a reference to the thoughts and ideas that ferment inside a human brain before they emerge through spoken or written words. The title was chosen to reflect the emphasis of the unknown in both scientific inquiry and creative writing. Modern science provides new opportunities for natural metaphor to search for and create meaning in all areas of human thought and endeavor. Dark Matter will use cosmological, evolutionary, quantum mechanical and traditional natural metaphor to elicit literary thought and infuse modern ideas into poetry and prose.

My poem, Nostalgia Half-life was published in Cordite Poetry Review

My poem, Nostalgia Half-life, was published in Cordite Poetry Review on February 1, 2015 in their OBSOLETE issue # 49. You can read it here

Tracy Ryan,  guest poetry editor of Cordite 49  says this about Issue # 49 - This OBSOLETE issue invites readers to reconsider the throwaway – to rummage, revise and reassess in the imaginary office of lost property that some languages prefer to call ‘found’. It’s not about nostalgia; some things we need to lose. It’s about individual and collective responsibility and reinvention.
