The Gap-Toothed Madness Vol. 2 Issue 2

My contribution to the latest issue of GTM is a longish poem about the D.C. riots of the summer of 1919, which prompted Duke Ellington to relocate his first band to Harlem. We all know how that turned out! It’s a great issue with a whole section of new artwork. Get yer copies here.

The Gap-Toothed Madness Vol. 2 Issue 1

A little mag I’ve been published in before, The Gap-Toothed Madness, decided to come back for another round! Issue 1 of Vol. 2 contains a narrative poem I wrote about a man driving up country to spend Christmas with his parents. It gets a little surreal at times. It even closes out the issue, which for some reason seemed important to me. Anyway, if all that sounds worthwhile, head over to the GTM store to pick up a copy. Winter is finally over guys. xxxx

The Gap-Toothed Madness Issue 3

The latest issue of The Gap-Toothed Madness just hit the shelves, and it contains another of my ekphrasis poems, this one based on a blue period Picasso from 1901, La chambre bleu. Visit the GTM online store to pick up a copy.
