Poetry update, including a new fairy poem

My latest poem, “A Pixie Built a Human House,” appears in the inaugural issue of Pastel Pastoral Magazine, available today.  I’ve always loved the idea of fairy houses, so reversing the scale was great fun.  The first line (also the title) popped into my head while I was on a walk and processing a frustrating event in my life from the day before.  You might consider this poem about parental love the yang to the yin of my horror story “Hell-ium Balloon,” as I coyly referenced when that story came out earlier this year in Last Girls Club

By the way, I have another fairy poem due out next month in the anthology Into the Glen: Into the Light, and a dark fantasy poem scheduled for this fall in The Common Tongue Magazine.  And later this month, some big news on my fiction and a workshop!
