Thanks to Trey and the folks at Front Porch for taking two poems.

This has been a weird week for me.

But I'm happy to know the work continues to find editors who like it.

They're part of the same "series," if you can call it that, with the Nocturnes. And I'm trying to expand upon that with some new photographic ekphrastic poems. I'm so sick of reading ekphrastic poems about paintings. Not sick of it, but it just seems too easy maybe, and expected.

I have a bunch of photographers I'm trying to cull through to find striking photos, most which I've seen in the past years and haven't forgot about. That's a good sign, to me, that a draft should be written. Usually fire is involved in the photos. That's no surprise to me or probably anyone else.
