Greetings Poetry Fans and Poetry Fam!
I seem to be on a bit of a roll! Following my inclusion in the incredible anthology We Don’t Break, We Burn: Poems of Resilience, I’ve just been published again! This time, my work appears in the March issue of Deep Times: A Journal of The Word That Reconnects.
Deep Times is a biannual journal inspired by the work of environmental activist and scholar Joanna Macy. It “offers must-read articles, art, and poetry for people who have experienced the shift in perception invoked by the Work That Reconnects – of how life flows in relationships and systems, not isolated things, and how our selves are not separated from each other or Earth, but deeply interdependent.” As such, I’m deeply honored to have been included in this issue.
My published piece, “Shards” has been a favorite of many readers, especially recently. In it, I describe my archetypal loneliness and frustration trying to navigate a world in decline, deterioration and transformation. By hesitantly sharing this poem with others, I’ve learned I’m not alone. I’ve met more who are “truly weary of the brokenness” and who also seek a “path leading out of this shatter zone.”
Thank you for reading!
Greetings Poetry Fans and Poetry Fam! Guess what?
It’s been five years since my work was last published in non-electronic form, so I’m pleased to announce that the much-anticipated anthology We Don’t Break, We Burn: Poems of Resilience is now out!
Edited by my uber-talented poetry brother Zachary Kluckman of Albuquerque, it features some of the best poets in the region, writing about a very timely topic — resilience. My piece, “Impact” was inspired by one of my sister Nancy Alder’s stunning art pieces, created after a serious car accident almost one year ago.
Please support Zack, MindWell Poetry and the artists by purchasing a copy for yourself or a loved one on Amazon. With only $13 you can vote “yes” to the necessary beauty and insight that only art can provide.

Hi folks! I’m honored to have had my piece “The Change” included in the Summer 2015 edition of the Malpais Review. You can get your copy on Amazon for only $12. Enjoy!
Hi there! Two more of my pieces appeared in the in the winter 2015 edition of Catching Calliope, a Swimming with Elephants Production. The poems are Be Gentle and Listening. This anthology really has some incredible work in it — fiction and memoir as well as poetry. All the authors are Albuquerque writers and many are quite young. After reading 4-5 pieces I have to put the book down and spend a few days letting them sink in!
You can purchase a copy on Amazon, or support local, small businesses and purchase (for cheaper) at Bookworks ABQ or Cafe Bella Coffee. Enjoy!
