In a world gone mad with terrible news, I received a bit of happy news this past week. My poem, "When the Gunman Comes", has been nominated for a Rhysling Award. I feel astonished, slightly embarrassed, and deeply grateful to the kind soul (whoever you are) who did this lovely thing for me and my poem.
The poem, first published in Mythic Delirium Magazine by the generous Mike Allen, is an exploration of my anxieties about gun violence in America. I still feel close to the sentiments reflected there.
