Thank you to Sappho's Torque for including me as one of their featured poets for National Poetry Month. I am honored that they chose "A Particle Theory of Inheritance" as an example of my work. This is an incredibly special poem to me, a celebration of physics, written for Dr. Forrest G. Hall on the occasion of his eightieth birthday.

Warmest thanks to the editors, A. Molotkov and John Sibley Williams, at The Inflectionist Review for publishing two of my new poems, "Haunting" and "Spring Equinox: Pandemic." I have long been hoping to have my work included in this esteemed journal of exquisitely curated poetry and artwork. (Cover art for The Inflectionist Review, Issue #13, shown here, by Megan Merchant.) Be sure and check out this amazing issue! The Inflectionist Review has a very unique aesthetic, an editorial approach "that fosters a dialogue...between ambiguity and concept." Bring on the magic! Highly recommend!

I am over-the-moon thrilled to have my poem, "White Swan and Cherries," featured in the Fall Issue of Pensive: A Global Journal of Spirituality in the Arts. As all of my colleagues working in mental health and health care are well aware, this has been eighteen months of spirit-crushing proportions, a time when fairy-tale magic is the only thing that can possibly keep you going.

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Red Shoes," my poem, "Crimson Dance," debuted today in the premiere issue of EQUINOX literary magazine. Immense thanks to their editors for including my poem. This is a stunningly beautiful journal with meticulous attention to detail. Look how their art department wrapped the epigraph I used from the original fairytale around the body of the poem! Lovely! Issue # 1 can be read here: simplebooklet.com/equinox
Their next issue will be published on the next seasonal equinox in March of 2022. I highly encourage poet's to submit: www.hotpoet.org/equinox-submissions

Thank you to Carmina Magazine for publishing the poem I wrote for my step-father, Dr. Forrest G. Hall, an amazing man and a world-class physicist. With his deep commitment to learning and science, he gave my brother and I gifts that we can never repay. We remain deeply indebted to him (even though he didn't believe us when we tried to explain to him that our house was haunted). Here's to the magic of ghost stories and galaxies!
