I’m a poet now. Watch out!

My first poem, Starring You in the Role of the Fourth Rider, is out now in the very first issue of House of Zolo. You can get it directly from HoZ in EPub form here or or as a Kindle Book on Amazon.

Here’s the opening stanza:

Here’s a secret: you are the center of a parallel universe.
Your sister was wrong; it’s all about you! As a kid you tried to learn some humility, but you are the Big Bang, the axis on which all tilts.

I had been playing with the underlying concept in Fourth Rider as a possible story idea for some months when I found myself surprised–and more than a little delighted–to realize it could fit rather handily into a poem. And surprised and very delighted sums up my feelings about having it published, too!
