My Poem “Rabbi” in the New Issue of Hermeneutic Chaos

The March, 2017 issue of the literary journal Hermeneutic Chaos (whose editor, Shinjini Bhattacharjee, is truly wonderful to work with) went live today, and my poem entitled “Rabbi” is included.

As usual, it’s a stunning issue, and I’m especially pleased to find my work alongside that of poet Lena Khalaf Tuffaha.

Read (and/or listen to) the whole thing!

Poem for Freddie Gray Up at Atticus Review

I just found that this was posted at Atticus Review a week or so ago. It’s another one of my “Dream Poems,” written shortly after the death of Freddie Gray, which followed his arrest by Baltimore police. It started with a dream about my paralyzed pigeon, Cleo, who died a while back after 12 years with me.

AND a Poem in Whiskey Island

April’s been a wonderful month for print publications! I was so pleased that editor Amber Taliancich Allen chose this poem from among the ones I submitted, as it was really my own favorite among them.

My Poem “Blackouts (Dog Days 2014)” at MadHat Lit

The fabulous literary journal MadHat Lit saw fit to include my poem, which is about the violence and unrest in Gaza and in Ferguson late last summer, in its Winter 2015 issue. Here it is (and definitely read some of the other poetry and prose there as well):

A Short Poem from Gospel of the Throwaway Daughter

This is one of the poems from my new book that was not previously published in a literary journal. Consider it a short advertisement, if you like. 🙂

Memory

He said, I lay
in city silences too: city
of antiquated dreams.
To the blind world
they answered. Just a memory
of the kind of world you live in,
somewhere under that sky.
