Evan Karp over at The Write Stuff interviewed me for SF Weekly.
(I just learned that, due to budget cuts, all regular SF Weekly columns are getting the boot. This is a drag, because Evan’s work to connect the literary community through Litseen and Quiet Lightening deserves a wide audience. Thankfully, the interviews will still happen over at Litseen.)
The good editors at Midnight Breakfast have released their fourth issue, and my non-fiction piece, “I Have No Bow”, was included.
It’s about a subway ride experience I had, and the mini-crisis of conscience which ensued. I wish that women all over the world could dismiss with a single civil gesture any public attention that came their way. Alas…we have no bow.

This Spring, I contributed a poem to a great new publication, Ekphrasis, edited by Monique Mero-Williams and produced by Fourteen Hills and Voices/Visions. I was assigned an image (“Guest” by Jennifer O’Keeffe) and asked to respond. I wrote “Hottub Exegesis”. It is a lovely journal, with nice heft in the hands, and I hope they make many more of them.
