My poems "Portland Heroes", "#BiVisibility", and "True Colors and False Flags" are featured in the inaugural issue of Weatherbeaten, "a refuge for those seeking asylum from the storm. It's a home to those ravaged by the downpour of current and future harsh conditions--ice storms, floods, drought, tornadoes, hurricanes, infrastructure failure, eco-terrorism, corporatism, fascistic rule, racial injustice and hatred, gender bias, sexual discrimination, poverty--and to those who have survived the catastrophes past."
My poems "Intersectionality", "Begging for Help", and "The Price of Prisons for Profit" appear in the second issue of Tiny Tim Literary Review, targeted at normalizing the narratives of those who have chronic illness and disabilities and humanizing medical professionals.
