New Poem: Abstracted

I can’t tell you how honored I am to be included among a handful of amazing writers and artists in the most recent issue of Third Point Press, a literary journal that hails from my very own hometown of Lancaster, PA. (There’s an extra special thrill in getting published somewhere that even your mom has heard of!) Check out my piece, “Abstracted.”

This is the first themed issue from Third Point Press — Skin — so once you’re done reading my poem, make sure to explore some of the other awesome work. I like pretty much every single piece in this issue, but in particular, don’t miss Jennifer Martelli’s poem, “Kitty Genovese Names Her Fourteen Wounds“; Todd Dillard’s “Fat Boy“; Dante Douglas’ piece, “We All Have To Come Home Someday“; and the disturbing/mesmerizing short story, “The Life Cycle of a Peach Tree,” by Christopher M. Drew.

Not to mention, all the photography in this issue is wonderful! The piece you see paired with my piece in the thumbnail is by featured artist Osmyn Oree.

    Thank you for sharing your writing.
    The photo by Osmyn Oree is a great fit. I appreciate Osmyn’s portrayal of a human being with, as Osmyn says, a “universal sense of rawness and honesty” without sexualization or fetishizing.
