New Poetry in The Puritan

I have a new three section poem in the new issue of The Puritan which just came out today. You can check it out here. There is also an audio recording of me reading the poem. You can also listen to the audio here.

I was interviewed for The Puritan's blog, The Town Crier, about the process of writing the piece. I'll let you know when that comes out.
