My poem "Armed" appears in Issue 5.2 of Star 82 Review, an art and literature magazine, online and print that highlights words and images in gemlike forms. Each issue features subtle humor, humility and humanity, the strange and the familiar, and a home for the displaced person. (Star 82 is the code needed to unblock one's phone number.)

Food ♦ Family ♦ Friends
What food you eat, whether your family nurtures or abuses you, and how friends fit into your life determine whether you live in despair or delight, cringing or cavorting through your days. The poems in Food ♦ Family ♦ Friends capture the marvelous and the malignant of all three.
