new poem at tinderbox poetry journal!

Just a quick post to announce the release of the latest issue of Tinderbox Poetry Journal which includes my poem “Pantoum for the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe!”

This poem is cousin to my recent microessay published at the Letras Latinas blog.

This issue of Tinderbox also includes powerful work by Su Hwang, John Sibley Williams, and Anuradha Bhowmik amongst others. Check it out here.

Special thanks to Jennifer Givhan & everyone at Tinderbox for putting together such a great issue.

See you Friday!

* new work at tinderbox poetry journal & new audio!

Just a quick note announcing the release of the latest issue of Tinderbox Poetry Journal which includes my poem “Todo for Nada.”

Along with being a subverted villanelle, this poem is from a sequence entitled “The Nada Poems” in which two characters, Todo y Nada, play out a relationship (check out another Nada poem: “Zero Flirts With Nada”).

This issue of Tinderbox also features an array of stellar writing including work by Nancy Bevilaqua, William Fargason, and two stunning pieces by Sun Yung Shin, one that incorporates elements of tarot.

Thanks to Jenn, Molly, and everyone at Tinderbox for their support!

Also, I wanted to share the news that the good people of RHINO Poetry have released the audio of my reading “Joe” on their site. Thanks to Valerie Wallace for the update!
