Portland Heroes
True Colors and False Flags

I appear as the lead author in the inaugural issue of Weatherbeaten -- "a refuge for those seeking asylum from the storm" -- which features three of my poems: "Portland Heroes", "#BiVisibility", and "True Colors and False Flags".

The inaugural issue is in memory of Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland, Kathryn Johnston, Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Freddie Gray, Philando Castile, and "all of those that have suffered at the hands of systemic oppression."

"The voice of each piece calls out to us, and brings us closer to the human experience with every line placed for our reflection."
