Tuesday: An Art Project

Just returned from a wonderful 4th weekend with my love's hometown of Boise with fantastic news!

My socially-aware poem "Cutting Along the Edges" will be published in the Fall 2010 print issue of Tuesday: An Art Project. Their Spring issue contains work from such names as Franz Wright, so I am excited to find my work in it's fine pages!

"Cutting Along the Edges" is a statement about the distance between real and televised feelings about the suffering of others, about how I (and nearly everyone) speak of atrocities and far-away pain as if it were out own, as if we were all connected, yet we are at heart unmoved...perhaps the act of talking about feelings replaces the feelings themselves...
