It’s great to have my poem, “Forewarned” published in the Eunoia Review today!  Thank you to editor Ian Chung.

This is another confessional poem from me.  As a former diarist, I naturally take to this form.  I postponed my career as a writer/poet because of my discomfort with revealing my life, my feelings, my experiences.  But I will no longer squelch or censor myself.  There’s just not enough time for that. As Al DeGenova, publisher/co-editor of After Hours, writes in the Winter 2017 issue:  “Write the true sentence, our only last defense–bear witness.”

I bear witness to my life in the hope that it also bears witness to larger social themes.  The only way to find out is to write.
