More poetry!

In which new lit is lit 🔥

Ciao tutti—

The lovely new lit mag Journal of Erato dropped its second issue today, entitled Hometown, in which my poem “Me and Mike #3” is featured.

It began life as a fragment, a half-thought-out meditation on being away from familiar places and people. Then I realized it could accommodate line breaks, and the rest is history.

There are three sections to the issue—Childhood, Adolescence, and Adulthood (my piece belongs to the third)—each of which is affecting in its own way. I recommend it all.

Each journal publication is an unrepeatable experience, a group of selected voices assembled to tell the story of that singular publication as only they can. However big or small the imprint, it’s pretty extraordinary.

Oh, on another note, the podcast broke 600 downloads this morning! Deep thanks to all who listen. We hope it brings you as much joy to hear as it brings us to create.

More full-length posts soon.
