Poem in Whale Road Review, Issue 26

One of the great pleasures of writing poetry is reading poetry, and the launch of an issue that includes a poem of mine is always exciting for all of the new work it introduces to the world and to me.

Birds Like Bombs

I wrote the poem included in this issue a year ago, when the part of the world where I live was much as it is now, emerging from a long winter. It’s a thrill to see it in print.

My poem even makes an appearance in Editor-in-Chief Katie Manning’s intro to the issue, which was a lovely surprise:

Welcome to the Spring 2022 issue of Whale Road Review! In these creative pieces, you’ll find the gardens and birds you might expect in a spring issue, but some of these gardens are haunted, and some of the birds are like bombs.

I’m loving reading every piece in this issue.
