This is going to be a quickie since I’m thisclose to having exams and my readings rival Borges’ Babylonian library (*insert panic and weeping and more coffee*) but hey, good news:

New poem (“Aphasia”) up at Stone Telling 9: Menagerie!

Many thanks to editors Rose Lemberg & Shweta Narayan.

(PS Kind of amusing that I spent a chunk of the day reviewing Neuro topics- Guillain-Barre, Peripheral Nerve Diseases, and Alzheimer’s)
