                                                                                You can love a man

 

           more than he’ll ever love back or be able to, you can confuse

 

           your understanding of that

 

                                                                   with a thing like acceptance or,

 

          worse, all you’ve ever deserved.

 

—Carl Phillips

Publication: 2 poems in Qwerty

QWERTY was kind enough to take 2 new poems of mine, called “I’ve left nothing inside on purpose,” and “The Perseids.” They also just announced they’re putting these two poems forward as Pushcart Prize nominations. A long-shot, but it still stokes!
