These are the pages of the October Issue of Beyond Words Literary Magazine where my poem lives, paired with the art of Rita Malenczyk.
The artist and I have never met. The editor chose our collaboration on paper (and in digital format). What do you think?
There's so much to read into this artwork––gazing into it the way you'd gaze into a crystal ball. And isn't it uncanny how the color orange shows up to meet my poetry (chapbook covers a case in point)?
