Fire Escapes

At long last,  I won a prize in an international poetry contest, The Plough Poetry Prize, for my poem "Fire Escapes," an un-alphabetical abecedarian about about fear and its inherent irrationality and subjectivity. How we can be afraid of things others handle with courage and brave about things others fear. And how we can step outside of our fears and laugh at ourselves while still taking our fears seriously.
