  1. This poem most definitely deserves a prize! I’m glad to have the chance to read it here. What an imagination you have. Bess seems so real, so human.

  2. Incredible.

    I found your poetry on Boxcar and had to come check it out in full. I love the things you derive inspiration — the specific and random curiosities that persist in memory, and fractals of possibility in the everyday that inspire me so much too.

    Also, at the end of “Dao of Dow” we totally had an image synchronicity about the geode… reading this, I feel like my poem “Saturn” found a really cool, more experienced cousin. ;)
