Your love is like a wave sent from God,
crashing over me,
taking my breath away,
pulling me under
where the flames of my heart
can be quenched
in deep waters
that I’ve never
quite learned how to swim.

A few recent publications:

Issue 7 of Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine was released yesterday. My poem “Three-Legged Dog” appears within.

Issue 30 of Section 8 Magazine’s print zine contains my poem “Untitled/Entitled.”

The August issue of Ygdrasil features my two poems “Held Lovingly” and “Erupting Tide.”
