Stop by The Bees Are Dead.

If you haven’t caught up with The Bees Are Dead lately, now is a good time to do so.  B.A.D. featured a particularly potent piece today by Stephen Jarrell Williams, “In the Desert.”  It’s a surprisingly effective poem despite its deceptively simple language, and I recommend it highly.

You can also find an outstanding example of prose poetry in Darren C. Demaree’s “Trump as a Fire Without Light #86.”  (This is actually one of my favorite poems submitted to B.A.D. so far, and I have no doubt that many readers both here in America and abroad will relate to its poignant social commentary.)

Be sure to peruse Wren Tuatha’s “The Trees Tell Our Future” too.  It’s a beautifully evocative poem that has stayed with me long after I read it for the first time.

Once again, thank you to Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams!

Publication Notice: Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo feature two poems

I just received some nice news — two of my poems were featured today at both Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo.  The first is entitled “June, Washington, 1998,” and was first published by Dead Beats Literary blog in 2012.  The second is a short, humorous poem entitled “Crow’s Feet,” and appeared on this blog last week.

You can find the poems here at Dead Snakes, and here at UFO Gigolo.

As in the past, I am quite grateful to Stephen Jarrell Williams, Editor for both Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo!

“A Muted Iris” was first published by Dagda Publishing in October 2014; the haiku was most recently published last year by Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine.  (It follows “Amanda,” which was featured by both Dead Snakes and Peeking Cat.)

Publication notice: Dead Snakes features two poems

I’m honored to share that two poems of mine were featured today over at Dead Snakes.

The first is entitled “Blue Wolves Move In An Indigo Wood.”  The second is a short humorous poem that I wrote at the Metro stop at the Pentagon, and is entitled “Hot Cop.”

Thanks once again to Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams over at Dead Snakes!

UFO Gigolo features my trio of poems, “Three Dreamers”

I was honored today to see my first poems published at UFO Gigolo.  Stephen Jarrell Williams, who is also Editor of Dead Snakes, kindly featured “Three Dreamers” there.

Check out UFO Gigolo.  It’s damned fun.  It focuses specifically on poetry in the genres of science fiction, fantasy and horror.  I am currently enjoying three poems there by contributor Alan Catlin.

If you’d like to peruse “Three Dreamers,” and you didn’t see them yesterday over at Dead Snakes, you can find the set of three poems here:

Publication notice: Dead Snakes features “Three Dreamers”

I’m honored to share here that Dead Snakes published “Three Dreamers” today.  This is a set of three related poems that was first featured by Dagda Publishing, in the United Kingdom, in January 2013 — the poems’ individual titles are “The Writer,” “The Secretary,” and “The Bureaucrat.”  Dagda subsequently featured these poems in print format in its 2013 poetry anthology, “Threads.”  Finally, these poems were published in 2014 by Illumen, a quarterly print-only poetry journal here in the United States.

Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams also kindly informed me the he would feature the poems on another site for which he serves as editor — UFO Gigolo.  This online publication focuses on poetry in the genres of fantasy, horror, and science fiction.  I’m new to the site, but it looks like great fun, perhaps especially for the sci-fi and horror fans with whom I’ve become acquainted here at my blog.
