A pair of poetry sales

2022 has come in with two new poems queued up in Canadian literary journals:

“Local Leopards” — a piece about self-destructive communal loops, complicity, and leopards eating yes, your face, but in the key of “Tupelo” — will be in Qwerty Magazine, the University of New Brunswick’s literary journal. It is part of my master plan to make “sounds like Nick Cave” a literary school.

“Breaking Horses” will be in a future issue of Grain. It’s a piece about Georgia O’Keeffe, codification, colonialism, and depiction but also just a bit of words being wonderful in motion; how sometimes you put them in your mouth to see what happens, and trust the result.

Updates when they hit print!
