My poems”Scarecrow,” “When the Shadows Fall Like Drapes Across the Living Room Floor,” and “Elegy to a Betrayer by an Outlaw Prophet” were published in Issue 4, 2013 of Contrappasso Magazine.

Here’s an excerpt from “Elegy to a Betrayer by an Outlaw Prophet”:

For I sound the omen’s sigh

There is a beast in the market place

a brick-fleshed idol with chalk bones

plumed and vested

in the mail bonds of patriotism

banners of blood

and streamers

of sheer white
