Poem – “Bloom”


A sequence whose spawn
Is the millennia of gilded poisons,
Gallium fortunes, dark pleasures

Harvest of the phantom island
Gravitating in the wartorn skyline
Heroic bastion, solely by survival

Two New Featured Poems

My poems “Hidden in a False Sun” and “In the Land of Rust” were featured in the latest issue of Radium Piano Band, an avant-garde magazine you should totally follow. Some great up-and-coming writers here. Consider this a sample of Cosmic Love, a poetry collection that’s been completely reworked and arrives in about a week. My estimate is that it’ll be out on April 23rd. Both of these poems will be in the collection.
