That's the title of my newest publication, a full-length book of poetry (my first!) from Flowstone Press, available from Amazon. The poems in Such Luck concern themselves with finding beauty in a time of darkness. Sometimes playful, sometimes deadly serious, always accessible. And a beautiful cover:

Equinox + Duck

Often, in po-biz, an editor will accept one poem of mine and then never accept anything else I submit months or years later. I am grateful to the handful of editors who choose my poems for more than one issue. For "Equinox + Duck," a poem on the edge of slipstream, I thank editor John C. Mannone of the high quality Silver Blade Magazine. I read every issue!

His Wheat Dream

Do you like short poems?  I love the way unstamatic pairs short poems with pictures. Check out "My Wheat Dream" from the link.

Revising Cleveland

I find it fascinating how people remember different things about the same place or event. As people age, their memories become more psychological than factual. "Revising Cleveland" is online at Sweet Tree Review.

I Walk Inside a Cocktail

Print journals are lovely and easy to read. So happy to have my poem "I Walk Inside a Cocktail" in San Pedro River Review's Fall 2019 issue.
