My poem “Afternoon Chieftain” is in the May Issue of the Doctor TJ Eckleburg Review, the fine literary magazine of Johns Hopkins University’s MFA program. After lots of love from West Coast publications I am thankful for publication in my home turf!
A cool aspect of the publication of this poem is that the great editorial staff at the Doctor TJ Eckleburg Review is that they engage writers in a dialogue about the writing life, inspiration, etc. Included with my poem is an essay about “Afternoon Chieftain.”

An excerpt from my essay: “Each line is of great importance to me as I consider both its aesthetics and its logistical efficacy in moving forward the narrative or emotional plot.”
