I have a new essay out in the beautiful journal Phoebe. This piece, “Ordering in Four Movements,” is nonfiction, but neither poetry nor prose–or rather it’s both poetry and prose. You could call it lyrical experimental flash nonfiction. It’s about my father’s death, my oldest cat Mac’s death, and the mama hummingbird raising her babies–all events that occurred in 2015 and that I’ve written about on this blog.
It’s not available online, but if you’re inclined you can purchase a copy of the issue HERE.
A big thanks to Phoebe‘s nonfiction editor, Eric Botts.
I’ll update you on my travels with Mom on Thursday! Make your week the best it can possibly be.
