Call for Submissions

My poem “I Know I Have Loved Patricia” published in TAB

I’m excited to announce my poem “I Know I Have Loved Patricia” was published in Volume 11, Issue 3 of TAB: The Journal of Poetry & Poetics. You can download the issue in PDF or listen to audio read by each contributor on their current issue page.

This poem was inspired by a fairly recent tradition started by a line from a Frank O’Hara poem entitled “Katy,” which includes the line “Some day I’ll love Frank O’Hara” which inspired the poem by Roger Reeves, “Some Day I’ll Love Roger Reeves” followed by one of my favorite poets, who wrote “Someday I’ll Love Ocean Vuong” followed by “I Never Knew I Loved Dean Rader.”
