This poem appears in the inaugural online issue of andwerve, a journal out of LA.
I wrote the first draft of the poem while on a 2-week residency at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. Thanks, Julie and Jess, for making me feel so welcomed. The poem received the benefit of crits from MonoE, Urizen, Kemmer, shadygrove and Dunc at PFFA. Thanks, everyone of you.
