Portland Heroes
True Colors and False Flags
My poems "Portland Heroes", "#BiVisibility", and "True Colors and False Flags" are featured in the inaugural issue of Weatherbeaten, "a refuge for those seeking asylum from the storm. It's a home to those ravaged by the downpour of current and future harsh conditions--ice storms, floods, drought, tornadoes, hurricanes, infrastructure failure, eco-terrorism, corporatism, fascistic rule, racial injustice and hatred, gender bias, sexual discrimination, poverty--and to those who have survived the catastrophes past."

"Where Have You Been?" about the January 21, 2017 Women's March on Washington, appears in Black Lives Have Always Mattered, a collection of essays, poems, and personal narratives edited by Abiodun Oyewole from 2Leaf Press.
