Two new poems

Two poems of mine have appeared recently in literary journals:

“Shadows the words” is in this week’s (June 4th) issue of UnLost, a fantastic journal of found poetry that’s openly accessible online. This poem’s an acrostic (certain letters in every line spell a word) and a cento (a poem made wholly of lines from other poems)…so I think that makes it an acrosticento.

And “New patriot love” is in the current issue (#3) of Milkweed Zine, a bold and diverse queer feminist erotic ‘zine based in Toronto. This poem’s a dirty riff on Canada’s flag and national anthem — just in time for Canada’s 150th! 😉

  1. Wow! Just wow! I love “Shadows the word”! I can’t decide whether it’s romantic or despairing, but it is love, and I suppose sometimes love is both.
