dying of yay, poetry


Just found out that my poem “The Apiary,” which was published in Boxcar Poetry Review, was selected by Patricia Smith for inclusion in the 2009 Best of the Net Anthology.

I am so excited on many levels. I freaking love this poem. I tried to write a Sampson and Delilah poem for so long before it actually happened, and I am just so grateful for the reception it’s had. Also, as I’ve said before Boxcar is one of my favorite journals. Additionally, Patricia Smith is a bad-ass poet, and you’ll note that a few days ago I posted her performance on Def Jam of her poem “Skinhead.”

Color me super, super excited.

Huge thanks to Neil Aitken at Boxcar for the nod.
