In case you missed the announcements on Twitter and FB, a new poem of mine is now online: "Coffee Shop Painting" appears in Issue 16 of Devilfish Review. This poem is about painting with coffee as a magical art form. I suspect it's partially influenced by viewing my mother's sketchwork when I was a child. She used charcoal instead of coffee, but it still seemed like conjuration to me.

And since the deadline for nominating works for the Rhysling Award is coming up (February 15!), I'd like to point out that I had three poems published last year. "Levity" and "Aboard the Transport Tesoro" are eligible in the short poem category, and "glass womb" is eligible in the long poem category.

Thanks for reading!

Oh, wow, I didn't even realize/remember I was following you back in LJ land. I must have liked one of your poems somewhere.
Devilfish reads blind, which means I still objectively enjoy your work. I love when my tastes are consistent. :)
We get a lot of "maybes", but COFFEE SHOP PAINTING struck me as a "yes" right away. Nice job.

How funny and wonderful, the way our paths cross and recross! Thanks for the kind words re: Coffee Shop Painting. Always gratifying to hear an editor's unequivocal YES from out of the slushpile. :)
