On another note, I had a poem published in the December issue of PunkSoulPoet, which can be viewed here. It is on the night I met my wife and originally appeared here a couple years ago.”

My Name Is...   

i lied, the night we met,
telling you my name was Roman—
the anonymity felt good
after getting out of the hospital &
i was learning to breathe again—
putting my pieces back together
after breaking
but by the end of the night
i let you in, scribbling it
down in orange colored
pencil on torn scrap paper,
because it was all we could
find & when you read it
out loud & my name crossed your lips
i wanted to poke it back in
with my finger
because it felt
like home.

Check out the poet’s announcement in his blog here:

Good luck on your writing, publishing, everyone.
Have fun exploring poetry, talent, and poets today.
Happy Holidays…

Happy New Year!
