My work is a plague – and hopefully contagious (in a good way). Thanks to Brandon Stroud for disseminating my germs [poems] “Perfection Per Fiction” and “Disciples” as part of HobGob Press’ Poetic Plague Project, beginning yesterday at the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire.

“Perfection Per Fiction” first appeared in The Squire (a journal published by Writing Knights), and subsequently in my most recent chapbook, It Takes More Than Chance to Make Change (published by The Poet’s Haven).

“Disciples” comes from my first full length poetry collection, The Eater of the Absurd (published by NightBallet Press).
