"Moving" is an appropriate poem to end the year that I wrote while contemplating the Death card in tarot and am so happy to have published in The Pedestal Magazine, one of my top favorite literary journals. I am still waiting to have an auspicious dream on New Year's Eve in the Japanese way (to dream of Mt. Fuji, eagles, or eggplant, in that order). But there are also useful dreams and nightmares that help us find our true paths in life. So, may your dreams either be useful (like my poem "Moving") or auspicious. Happy 2015!

New short story online May 19

Please visit the wonderful Read Short Fiction site and comment on my story "Replacement" featured this May 2014. Consider yourself warned that this is a literary story and includes a sex scene and some mild drug references. But I want to hear about the lines that made you laugh.

This Is Just to Add

Okay, every poet has written a response to William Carlos Williams' famous poem "This Is Just to Say," and now I'm one of them. See what you think of my take on the current edition of Turtle Island Quarterly. Yes, I really do have weasels (fishers) in my back yard.

Morning Storm

Here's a poem I submitted for a theme of "liminal spaces" now online at Wolf Willow Journal. Here in New England, everyone has had enough winter (still some ice in my yard--still1) but I love the photo of Central Park.
