Last week, I received my contributor copy of the spring 2011 issue of New Mexico Poetry Review. The issue contains my poem "A History of Blood." The poem is the first to be published from a series I wrote dealing with a gay porn star imprisoned for brutally attacking an elderly couple who owed another guy money. I wrote thirteen poems dealing with that crime and with the overall idea of our attraction to sex and violence. If you want to listen to the poem, you can, because I did a podcast of it back in October. Listen here.
I'm honored to be in this issue of New Mexico Poetry Review. It also contains work by Jeremy Halinen and N. Scott Momaday. As always, I encourage you to buy a copy and to help support literary magazines.
