My poem “dreams of color 1997-2008” just went live on The.  The editor emailed me back saying that he liked the poem except for a final floating line that just made the whole thing silly.  I thought, “Hmmm,” and reread it, and -oh, the humanity!- he was absolutely right.  This stranger just managed to save me from myself.

I’m working on my poetry.  I’d like to get better at it, and that means a lot of reading, a lot of writing, and some listening now and then.  I want to do a little bit of everything, I think.  Short stories, novels, nonfiction, poetry.  I even co-wrote a screenplay that should never see the light of day, but it was so much fun to write!  I want to do it all.  I want to enjoy every last second of it.

Anyway, come see my poem at  And I was up to 40 submissions, (yay!) but today’s acceptance dropped me back down again.  (boo…wait, I mean yay!)  Most of you know that I’m a crazy sleeper.  Now you can see what I dream about.
