My poem “Rite” was published in the 2013 Noir issue of the Australian magazine, Contrappasso. Check out this very intriguing issue in a very fine magazine.


 Me and my old man

took a piss in the fields once

at night

when I was four

And I could see the lightning

whiplash in the distance

and smell the hot piss

of my old man and me

sizzle a hole

in the dark earth
