“Beauty Other Than” wins Midwest Literary Magazine’s Chapbook Contest 2011

My poetry collection, “Beauty Other Than” has won Midwest Literary Magazine’s Chapbook Contest 2011. It will be released and published later this year. Below is an excerpt poem from the section, “From the Neck Down”:


Two muzzles meet
at a distance
held back by leashes
wrapped around rough
cold hands

One bows
tail wagging
The other rises
ears erect

Eye to eye
sniffing and sensing
leashes now dangle

Tips of hats meet
through hesitant air
