Many of the poems below come from my full-length manuscript O Spirit, including the long poems "Marigolds" (At Length, 2015), "Dear, beloved" (POETRY, 2017), and "Windows" (POETRY, 2017), as well as shorter poems like "Spring" (Boston Review, 2015) and "Hound" (Witness, 2016). Find links to these poems, as well as a few others, below, and please see my CV for more.
"O Spirit," "O Spirit," "Essay on Joy," and "Essay on Devotion." Forthcoming in The Rumpus in May 2018.
"Windows." POETRY (November 2017). It is a true honor to have this poem appear in POETRY's feature of the work of the 2017 Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Fellows, particularly beside my fellow recipients Fati Asghar, Cortney Lamar Charleston, Roy Guzmán, and Emily Yoon, as well as with so many other poets I admire. My sincere gratitude to everyone at the Poetry Foundation, particularly Don Share, Lindsay Garbutt, Holly Amos, and Ydalmi Noriega. POETRY also kindly asked me to contribute again to the "Reading List" feature on the Poetry Foundation's blog; here is the November entry.
"Dear, beloved." POETRY (April 2017). I was thrilled to also have the chance to speak with Don Share and Lindsay Garbutt from the Poetry Foundation about this poem, and read some excerpts of it, on the POETRY Magazine podcast. And in the April 2017 iteration of the "Reading List" feature on the Poetry Foundation's blog, I had the chance to talk about some of the books that were on my mind while writing this poem.
