New poems in Adult Children anthology

I have three new poems out this week in the Adult Children anthology from Wising Up Press. “Pangaea Proxima,” “Panthalassa,” and “Juniper Tree, Boy and Bird” are in the “Generations” section of the book, about “how stories repeat, and change, over generations, as do definitions of adulthood.” The book is available for purchase now.
