I’m excited to announce that I’ve had two chapbooks published! The first one is Dress Forms from dancing girl press (2016). Many thanks to Kristy Bowen for the lovely cover and design! Here is a link to the dancing girl press shop:
Here is a sample poem from Dress Forms:
over the bodice rob bing
Robin red-breasted: single-
double- triple- many- breasted
midwife, animal-tender, hunter,
virgin-keeper. Not my
mother—my indoor mother
of drapes, porcelain,
Louis XIV decors & headless
dress forms she pinned her
worsted fantasies to.
The second chapbook is from Tammy, chiefly known to date for the Tammy journal.
Scar let Woe man (2016) was among three chapbooks selected for their first foray into chapbook publishing.
Here is a link to Scar let Woe man on the Tammy website:
Here is a poem from Scar let Woe man:
[My] id entity doesn’t know all myselves,
r aced & g end e red into a two- p art y system.
Id entity s woo ns on the anal yst’s c ouch,
freely ass ociating. [& I’m t he the rapist.]
[My] she id entity lives in Freudian fear of
any need to r un he r self like wolves.
Id entity cr ashes the g lass ceiling,
ig nor ing the l id Freud put on it.
[My] he id entity ex presses himself in
id iot g loss olalia. Yo u psycho rabble,
hysteria isn’t a hurt ling, w and er in g womb;
it isn’t en vying t he s word a pen is is.
[My] id entity is n either inn er no r under w ear,
but id iolect I he ar myself sh outing.
