When Work Becomes Play

I’m thankful to CTU Publishing for nominating a poem of mine for the 2016 Pushcart Prize. “Detoxification” is an excerpt from the full-length collection they released back in August, Happy Hour Hallelujah. This author’s page has more information about the book. I’ve now received three nominations this year, and I’m feeling rather fortunate at the moment.


All I know to do is live day by day, and to build a vision of the future that rises from the flames.
All I want to say is everything in the same moment, but one word at a time will have to do.
All I need was already given. All that I want is right now. All that remains is work. Thank God this is fun.
