EMILY AS THE ROT
I am not aging well.
Emily is aging appropriately.
I’m glad we made extra promises
to each other after
that wedding ended.
My poems have appeared, or are scheduled to appear in numerous magazines/journals, including Diode, Meridian, New Letters, Diagram, and the Colorado Review.
I am the author of six poetry collections, most recently 'Many Full Hands Applauding Inelegantly' (2016, 8th House Publishing). My seventh collection 'Two Towns Over' was selected as the winner of the Louise Bogan Award by Trio House Press, and is scheduled to be released in March of 2018. I am the Managing Editor of the Best of the Net Anthology and Ovenbird Poetry.
I am currently living and writing in Columbus, Ohio with my wife and children.
