We collided—reading while walking, kept our
fingers keeping places inside our books and,
wishing past coincidence, scanned each other’s
titles and thought not.
Raised in Illinois and now based in New York City, I’m a teacher and critic as well as a poet. Some of my recent poems and reviews appear in The Q Review, 88, The Believer, The Ledge, Spoon River Poetry Review, Vallum, andVirginia Quarterly Review. I’m also a past winner of the Norma Millay Ellis Fellowship, awarded by the Millay Colony for the Arts.
