Bio Note: While I've been working at a Costco store, my poetry has been published in various journals, such as frogpond and bottle rockets. Last year, I had three haiku chapbooks published by buddha baby press. I live in Rockaway, New Jersey, with plans of publishing my first full-length poetry book.
the poet in love
slicing lemons for her water he develops a stutter trying to find the right words
the day after new year’s getting back to the daily grind while nursing a hangover. striking a conversation with a complete stranger talking about tomorrow
