My poem, “Touchdown,” is featured today at Vita Brevis Press. Many thanks to Editor Brian Geiger for his support. The F3 tornado that struck Jefferson City, Missouri, just before midnight on May 22, 2019, took one life and caused millions of dollars in damages.
My video poem, “transmission remission,” is featured in the NAP Connection presentation of Spirits of Isolation – January to June 2020, an international exhibition of artwork produced during the Coronavirus Pandemic which was broadcast on 24 June 2020 on BCTV. Mine is the only poem presented and appears at 19:52 of the program, which is 55 minutes in length, but I am just one of the 90 artists featured.
Artists were asked to show how they were surviving during the COVID-19 pandemic through art created from January to June 2020. Hundreds of works of art are seen in the presentation, which includes paintings, sculptures, multimedia art, and photography, with some of the art associated with the lock down and isolation.
My thanks go to Organizers Ron Schira and Lisa Foster for including my poem in this presentation.
NAP Connection is a production of the New Arts Program, Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

My poem “without, as within” appears at Ekphrastic Writing Challenge Responses: Guillermo Wiedemann. It can be seen here, with many other deserving reads. The inspiration for the challenge is the painting “Figure (1959),” by Guillermo Wiedemann. Something tells me the current pandemic had something to say about this painting.
My thanks go to Lorette C. Luzajic, Editor at The Ekphrastic Review, for including my poem.
