I am excited about two recent publications!
Of Matches & Men (fiction)
My short story (4,500 words) was published in Issue 5 of Words Apart, a social-justice themed publication from Emerson College.
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is shot in the neck as he stands on the balcony of Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
Thursday, April 4, 1968. 10:56 p.m. U Street, NW, Washington, DC.
A man standing in front of a drug store balls up a wad of paper.
He lights a match to the paper.
He throws it inside.
Thirty years later the fire was still burning and crackling through the air.
For Ángela, the young mother of an 11-year old boy, her only wish is to protect her son from that raging fire.
Untitled (queen) (poetry)
I published a poem in the fall issue of BlazeVOX.
Yippee! Read it here.
