New poem!

I'm pleased to announce that I'm in recompose magazine #1: tropospheric scofflaw! And very very honoured that my poem, "Sweetness and Light," opens the magazine to a set of very interesting flash fiction!

"Sweetness and Light" began with an idea of the very first two lines: "when she speaks, sweetness and light spill forth / literally." What would that be like, to live like that? Combined with rape culture and the entitlement of society towards young women's bodies and time, I decided to explore what would happen if boundaries were crossed too often for a person who lived with this phenomenon.

Enjoy!
