I have three poems in the Fall 2014 issue of The Journal: “Who Taught You That One?”, “Can I Call You Shelly?” and “craniotomy.”
Update: The Journal is nominating “Who Taught You That One” for a Pushcart Prize!
Can I Call You Shelly?
Call me Shelly with the jellylip. Sad-Sour Shelly
with hog-tied thighs. Shelly with piss on the tip
of her canines. Always coddled a shine for the dirty.
Call me Shelly the Girl at thirty & don’t wake me
from my shake-dreams.
