Video of Poem: “The Galapagos Tortoise”

Here’s a video of me reading my poem “The Galapagos Tortoise,” which was published in the 2020 issue of RHINO.  I made the video in response to a call from RHINO: they had to cancel their release party because of the coronavirus and asked contributors to participate in a virtual launch. I’m joined by one of the giant tortoises from the island of St. Croix.

Enjoy!

Poem Published: “Green Jug”

I’ve just had a poem published in the magazine Rockvale Review. Here is its opening, and a link to the entire poem.

that hangs over the dry sink you bought
with my father years before
I was born.
