September 3, 2019 – The brand new poem “Cajeta (Gimme Some Sweet!)” was published today at Cajun Mutt Press. While a tiny bit “blue”, it is more a fanatic love letter to poets everywhere than anything, really, for all the “ear candy” they give us (though there are also a couple more underlying narratives imbedded in there as well).
This is the third creative piece of mine that reflects bits and pieces of my cultural identity — relatively new territory for me in terms of writing, but I am starting to have some fun (and take some risks) with it. Previous pieces include the short story “When Blood Wants Blood” (originally published at Down in the Dirt – vol 164 “The Deep Woods”) and the prose poem “Digging for Lost Temples” (soon to be published at Drunk Monkeys). I have one or two more pieces to toss around in my head before pen hits paper. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.
