My poems, "Homeland Security" and "Native Tongue," have both been accepted for publication in the upcoming erotica issue of Wilde Magazine. Both poems were written as part of a manuscript I worked on last spring entitled The Boy Who Came of Age. The poems in that book form a narrative cycle about coming out and my "sexual awakening," to use the somewhat overly dramatic parlance, between 18-21. The manuscript is firmly an example of what i have described when I have discussed the concept of poemoir, except, unlike other ones I have done before, this one was deliberately written with the narrative arc in mind, rather than arising from a group of poems that happened to coalesce around the same theme. I'm happy to have some of these poems beginning to make their way out into the world, and to join another poem from that collection--"The Wrong Man, The Wrong Night," published earlier this year in OCHO--in my published body of work. When information on how to get an issue of Wilde is available, I will post it on this site.
