Akitsu Quarterly

Akitsu Quarterly, a print published by Robin White out of New Hampshire, is one of my favorite journals! It is a rich magazine, with outstanding images and haiga between the work of my favorite poets. Again, I’m happy to appear in it – thank you, Robin! Here is a selection:

The Heron’s Nest, June 2017

The new issue of The Heron’s Nest came out today! I owe many thanks to editor Fay Aoyagi for accepting one of my poems for its inclusion. This is one of my favorite issues, with great work by Paul Miller and Hannah Mahoney and many others. These are poems to revisit again and again.
