New Poems in The Journal

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.

Read the rest online at The Journal.
