Poem in Mount Hope Magazine

I just received my contributor copies of the latest issue of Mount Hope in the mail, and I was so excited to see that my work had been picked up by such a lovely magazine.  With everything going digital now, it's something special to be able to sit with a book and see some of the ways to innovate with print. 

In this issue, Mount Hope, run out of Roger Williams University, published a poem of mine that I'm rather fond of, "This."  It's sort of my surreal and very slightly autobiographical take on a very broken ghazal.  I wrote it all in a rush, and then slowly edited it.  It's a bit strange and dark, but it was a lot of fun to write.  It's available to read online here, and I hope you enjoy it!
