New Poem with Rust + Moth

I’m delighted to report that Rust + Moth has included my poem “Regrowth” in their Spring 2020 issue. (Make sure to check out the cover art—it’s gorgeous!)

I wrote “Regrowth” about a year ago, one afternoon when I was knocked out with a fever. It’s about sympathetic magic in nature—a small taste of how I wish the world actually worked—and my sweet-spirited son. I won’t include a photo of him here, but—in it’s stead—here’s a recent sketch I drew of him one morning:

Some other poems I’d recommend checking out in the issue include Ceilidh Barlow Cash’s “Heartbeat,” Jennifer K. Sweeney’s delightfully detailed “Jennifers of the 1970s,” Remi Recchia’s “Self-portrait as Ghost,” and Diana Anhalt’s “Losing Español.” Read—enjoy!
