Distraction
Impossible Archetype (Issue 5, 25 March 2019)

“Distraction,” my latest poem now available in issue 5 of Impossible Archetype (a free PDF download), began as an exercise in anaphora and setting to tell a larger story. I also wanted to capture a particular mood.

I’m always impressed with Impossible Archetype, but this issue seems to contain within itself a particularly impressive range of poetic styles, voices, and topics. I’m so excited to have been included.
