On the Road Again

Although I have been playing hide and seek with my presence on social media, particularly over the past year and a half, I have also been working steadily over the past three years toward having a collection of poetry published.

Poetry has been my place of solace for a long time. I sit in it, find joy and rest and peace, and many times, it has brought me out of truly hard-to-be places. Now, as I come close to publishing my first poetry pamphlet (a very short 20-25 pages), it’s daunting to think about how it will be received.

Will others find themselves in it as I have found myself in other people’s works? Will these words do for someone what a Lucille Clifton or a Maya Angelou poem has done for me? It’s terrifying to think about my words in other people’s hands.

But I am also so proud to say that it is actually happening. This House, a pamphlet of poems that explores the idea of home, family, faith and agency, is available to pre-order from all good retailers.
