Poetry Lab: Week Four

            This is our fourth Poetry Lab and the first time we focus on a single poem instead of the usual two. “Cordially Yours, Regards” from Pearl Dandy is a lengthier poem than most I have written and, honestly, is more of a rant than a…

A taste of things to come…

May should finally bring the release of Underneath, my horror single. I had hoped you'd already have it in your hand, but producing a chapbook is not at all like producing copy and sending it off to become the printer's headache. Chapbooks are homemade affairs and, if I'm the one…

New Excerpt from Underneath…coming late April!

            His legs had gone numb. Knowing the lack of feeling meant nothing good, he nonetheless enjoyed his respite from pain. His head, though, was another matter entirely.
