the words

my poetic claims to fame are legion. actually, there is but one and it ranks amongst the dubious soldiers in the legion of honor: i have had a poem "appropriated" by a self-avowed pedophile, for inclusion in his poems of the week series. you'll have to go search it out on your own, or you can try and guess which one it is, assuming i have included it somewhere on these pages. you can also find some of my work in Agnieszka's Dowry, a much more respectable publication. yes, it does seem to smack a little of insider trading, but i leave it to you to read the pieces and decide if they belong there. if you're not in the mood for a poetic scavenger hunt, you can read some of my pieces right here, right now.
