My poemword in Sonic Boom

Sonic Boom is a literary and arts journal that publishes experimental poetry, flash fiction, visual art and Japanese short forms of poetry.  I am very happy my first poemword ever is included in their Paper Lanterns section for Issue 15.

You can read it  here

And do check out the rest of the poets in the issue — they do wonders with words.

Burn

Moran

 

 

Dreams are rhapsodies of children unborn

and ships burned anchored

because the gods are whores

as usual
