Poem Up at Juked–“Desert Circus in Three Rings (Dream Poem #2)”

Last summer I was thinking and dreaming a lot about what had happened in Ferguson, and about similar events around the county. I was also thinking about the destruction and death in Gaza under Operation “Protective Edge”, and about finishing the poems for my book about Jesus and Mary Magdalene, Gospel of the Throwaway Daughter. This poem was one of the results, and I’m really happy that the literary journal Juked chose to publish it!
