“Opus Interrasile,” the longest poem I’ve ever written, appears in the Hauntings issue of Ruminate. This piece is crown of sonnets, although to be honest, I didn’t know that was the name of the form at the time. Its title comes from a type of metalwork that creates holes to make a design. The poem is set in the St. Louis Art Museum, where I have wandered since I was a child. My last note about haunting closes the issue as well.

Cumberland River Review: The First Five Years

“Green Snake,” first published online at Cumberland River Review, has been included in that journal’s new anthology Cumberland River Review: The First Five YearsThis book collects not only selected poems but also authors’ commentary on their own poem as well as a poem by a fellow author, and so I was able to reflect on my work as well as Marjorie Stelmach’s “Lullaby for Two Voices.”
