My poem, "Clay Pots", made it into the BONEMILK Collective from Gutslut Press!  Preorders are available now, and this collection is scheduled to release in early March.

"Clay Pots" is an ekphrasis piece from the perspective of a hand-thrown pottery tea bowl I made using the sexual trauma recovery program I am building.  The process is detailed poetically, and the results are incredibly powerful.  Seeing this poem in print will be a dream come true.  It's always exciting to announce a publication, but this one is one of my all-time favorites to share.  I'm incredibly proud of this piece, and can't wait to perform it live!

Handwritten, cursive signature says "pea flower tea" in lowercase letters. The flower is a small sketch of a bloom, instead of the word for "flower".
