Happy New Year! Is February too late for that greeting? Probably. Out with the old and in with the new. But, for me, a part of 2016 rolled over into this year. My poem 2016 was published in this month’s Ink in Thirds magazine! It was an honor to be included!

a series of poems related in structure but unrelated in theme
And though I do not know the way,
I step forward – as I always do,
one foot into the new day.
They set the stage, built a life;
then let subsequent decades
pick at its seams, tearing them apart.
One day you may wake up and wonder,
Am I a dreamer or delusional?
But then, remember: only you are following the narrative.
