News: Publication

My poem “Fisher of Women” is in the July issue of Glass: A Journal of Poetry.

You’re trolling
for a wife. You want to bore

 

a hole and pull out
salvation. You want someone to

 

skin and fillet. Someone to replace
the chilled lips of the

 

bluegill pressed against
the icy line of your

 

mouth in your
favorite profile picture.

 

Someone slightly less
slippery. Someone slightly

 

more alive. I can tell you’re a
tender man by the way you

 

remove the hook.

Check it out for audio, more information about the poem, and to read the rest of the issue.
