As with my short and flash fiction, most of my poetry is available for free at various places around the internet. When not, I provide links to where you can purchase issues, books or access to archives.

Dracula Among the Ruins, Kaleidotrope, July 2021
It’s a piece that feels time keenly, even as Dracula passes through so much of it. Not idly, though, and not ignorant of the weight of it. A great read! Charles Payseur, Quick Sip Reviews.
