I’m pleased to pass on the news that my poem “Half-Shark” has found a home! This little weird poem is inspired by sibling love, My Little Pony, and the ’90s cartoon Street Sharks and its action figures. I’m really excited the poem has been included in issue seventeen of (parenthetical), thanks to the amazing team at words(on)pages. Nicole Brewer and William Kemp are two of the most supportive, caring, hard-working folk with whom I have had the pleasure of working (you may remember they published my micro-fiction “Mermaid in the Seine” a couple years ago). I hope you will support them (and me) by buying a print copy of issue seventeen with my poetry and the work of many other fine writers. But because of the publishers’ generosity, you can also browse the entire issue online!
