My poem "Engine Attitude" is the final poem of 2022 up at Palette Poetry. Thank you so much to the editors for choosing this one to close out the year. I love that the final word of their publication cycle and my own published work in 2022 is "because."

My poem "Sisters, We Must Gather Beneath the Tree of Life," is up today at SWWIM Every Day as part of their National Poetry Month project "Sing the Body," which features poems celebrating body positivity and our selves. It muses on sewing and the "tree of life" pattern that appears on a quilt my grandmother made.
