Gooey Love Poetry

An online publisher called accepted one of my gooey love poems.  Well, it's as gooey as I can get, you pagan you.

You can read it HERE.

If you feel all warm and tingly afterward, please consider voting it up.  If you feel like a dirty biker just looked at you with defilement in his eyes, well, maybe you should vote it WAY up.

This is a stellar moment in my writing career.  Not only did wise editor Tyree Campbell choose two of my poems for Illumen 28, he also chose to reference me on the cover.

Tyree says Illumen 28 contains, "...some of the finest poets in the Solar System. Suchlike include Ashley Dioses, Kendall Evans, Deborah Guzzi, Mickey Kulp, Amanda Faye, Bruce Boston, D. B. Heath, and more."

So Many Troubles - Published!

The Summer 2017 issue of The Broke Bohemian is out!

As I mentioned earlier, one of my poems was chosen, and you can read it HERE.

Thanks to Tyler Pursch and all the other not-so-intoxicated Broke Bohemian Blues Lovers for including me in this edition.  It is packed with great authors, so check it out, ya biscuit rolling hoochie-coochie rounder.

Wife-approved photo.  Please gaze lovingly upon it.

The Broke Bohemian

The Broke Bohemian is a startup seasonal publication that gives 50% of all donations to the American Civil Liberties Union.

They say: "We publish pieces at the forefront of unconventional thought and outlandish perspectives. Get wild. Wear your activism proudly. Bare your teeth. Rise up, and rave in the name of Beauty..."

I am thrilled to announce that they agreed to publish one of my poems this summer.  More details coming soon, but a hint is below.

You gotta pay your dues...

Bronte Sisters

Today, the topic is hope - and maybe a little hopelessness sandwiched in.  Here are some poem fragments from the Bronte sisters.

Charlotte, Emily, and Anne were 19th century English writers.  Charlotte was born in 1816, Emily in 1818, and Anne in 1820.

Fixional - Holy Man

Fixional is a new internet thing that you might like.  They are "assembling the world’s largest collection of fiction into one place, offering it all under one monthly price, and personally tailoring it to fit your needs. Our goal is to become the stewards of great stories—preserving strong narratives, paying authors when people read their works, and filtering through the millions of new stories written each year."

Happily, they asked me to be part of today's launch, so I sent them a short story from my "Lucid Series" that you can read HERE.

Please consider subscribing if you like what you see.  I plan to use my windfall for some new cardboard.  My old "will write for food" sign is getting ratty.

Chains, Motorcycles, and High Heels

The juices have been flowing for a few days.  A novel is sputtering forward, a chapbook has been put in a bottle and set adrift, a full-length tome of poetry is coagulating, and even a kid's picture book has been quietly making the rounds among editors and agents.

So, I needed to cleanse my palate with some free verse.  Enjoy.
