Hard to believe but my favorite comfort food is today’s google doodle, with a handy link to all things adobo.

Figgis takes flight
Look at this goofball running! This is a still from a video frozen to show how this not-quite-nine-pound dog runs: pulling his front paws under him, kicking his back paws out front. Is that how all dogs run?

Three new poems in MacroMicroCosm’s ‘Astral’ Issue
Thank you to Lis and the team at Vraeyda Literary’s MacroMicroCosm journal for publishing three of my speculative poems: Ansible Dreams, We Small Readers, and Chaos Theory (The Mandlebrot Set). It’s always exciting when my work finds a home!
My poems can be read via purchasing either the print or PDF version of the journal.
A mighty shout out to the two prose pieces within Astral, Matthew Buscemi’s To Shape the Future, and Sacha Rosel’s Into Something Rich and Strange (from Chapter 1 of her newly released novel My Heart is The Tempest). We have multiple pieces of poetry from longstanding contributor Adrienne Stevenson, Peter Graarup Westergaard (from his Warning Light Calling collection done in a dissident Soviet style, not dogma), and returning contributor Matthew Fast, who has the prestige to have been in the primordial issue of MacroMicroCosm years ago. Fast’s poetry is based off his song lyrics for the upcoming The Far Lands album, and I am pumped about hearing it via bandcamp when it hits Abram’s Epilogue.
Michael Janairo gives us three poems, while Sapha Burnell closes us off with one we used to end Volume 7 and bring on the stellar theme to Volume 8. Art by Sarah Melgoza & Katelyn Lane surrounds the poetry, while our last contributor is a posthumous submission by the estate of Cotrina Graham Smith. We hope you enjoy seeing 1980’s layouts, we got a kick out of them! So much so we featured the poems ‘as is’.

On the banks of the Providence River, a reminder of what millions of Irish and their descendants have to celebrate: peace, freedom, prosperity.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
Figgis at the galleries
Nice thing about NYC art galleries: Figgis is welcome!
He was a good boy. Sniffed some art but no touching.
New poem, ‘C,’ now online
I’m so happy my new poem “C” is included in the latest edition of the online journal Eye to the Telescope, Issue 43: “Light.”
