September 26, 2021 – Woke up to amazing news this morning! Beir Bua Journal accepted three new poems, “Boy with a Box Full of Wasps”, “Son Rise”, and “Raspberry Bushes”. Was happy to hear the news as I had just submitted last night (I love expedited submissions). Decided to keep some of the ‘edge’ from “Cough Syrup”, “Blood Honey”, “3 AM”, and “Dopamine” (soon to be published at Fugitives and Futurists) going a bit longer with “Boy…” and “Son…”. “Raspberry Bushes” is one of many bucolic-themed pieces that explores the ‘black and white’ of life but with lascivious undertones (I am quite fond of all these, actually). Publication scheduled for December 10, 2021. A huge THANK YOU to Publishing Editor Michelle Maloney King for the very quick acceptance!
