“It Takes More Sparrows” and “Just a Story” in Lamplit Underground Magazine

I’m so proud to have these two surreal pieces in the new issue of Lamplit Underground Magazine! One is the true story of a dream I had last year that I would die by gunshot; the other, a poem, imagines ten thousand sparrows flying with strings on their necks, carrying a piano closer to home. I didn’t think of either of them as protest pieces, but in this collection, at this moment, they feel that way. Read them here: Lamplit Underground Vol. 7: Burial at Sea
