Editor Mitchell Hart has posted the newest issue of Through the Gate,
my poem "Levity." A short, whimsical piece about what asakiyume aptly terms "inconvenient miracles," this poem was
loosely inspired by old photos of spiritualists. Also included are works by popelizbet
, Bogi Takács, M Sereno, Neile Graham, and Sarah Page, in an ever-changing lineup that prompts the reader to consider connections between the works. Or maybe the Table of Contents is just tricksy and having fun!
At Lightspeed, tithenai
has reviewed three books
from Aqueduct Press: sovay
's latest collection, Ghost Signs
, Jenn Brissett's novel Elysium,
and my collection, The Haunted Girl.
Amal is very complimentary, which is thrilling in itself, but she also clearly "gets" my book. I wanted to hug these words:...at the collection’s core: resistance to norms, to imposition, be they of language, sexuality, or mortality. There is a sharpness, a sting to most of these poems, of the kind that makes you hiss and then seek it out again....I loved the collection’s bilingualism, both in the presence of Spanish and the musings on being between languages, on the thermodynamics of translation.
I am so grateful my work is out there, being read, being appreciated.
Now, back to work!
