Upcoming Poetry Publications

I will have a few poems published online in the near future. Look for them here:

HAZARD CAT will feature ‘Postcards from the Road‘.

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE POETRY MAGAZINE will feature ‘Masai Adumu at Keekorok‘.

EVERYDAY POETS will feature ‘Whispers of Sandburg from a Poet Now Silenced‘.

BLUE SKIES POETRY will feature ‘Miramichi Remembered‘.

All should be posted either this month or next month.

Also, Newfoundland’s Memorial University’s PARAGON JOURNAL 3 is due to hit the shelves soon. I have 3 poems in the issue – ‘Newfoundland,’ ‘Queen Street Turnaround,’ and ‘You of Two Spirits‘.

Masai Adumu at Keekorok


Their voices lift
like gazelle in fright,
swell your insides
to heights that burst
and bleed in rivers red.

Their screeches
hit that place inside,
cracks it into pieces,
that place you did not know,
you did not dream you carried.

Their dance beckons,
screams your name
and you are left in tatters,
feeling loss of life,
your old life slips away,
you lift with every jump and neon yelp,
to stretch yourself complete.

Their red shúkàs sway,
entice ancient longing,
scream to all who are present,
we are, we are,
we are Masai.
