Poem Up At The American Journal Of Poetry

I’m thrilled to have my poem A Tandem Hang-Gliding Pilot Fails To Clip His Client’s Harness On included in Volume 8 of The American Journal Of Poetry! Many thanks to Robert Nazarene for his enthusiastic acceptance of this poem! This poem is my short take on a real incident – my longer take on it actually won the Difficult Fruit Poetry Prize in 2016. I am in the company of many poets I’ve long admired, so please check them out (Stephen Dunn, Bruce Bond, Robert Wrigley, Kyle Laws, Alexis Rhone Fancher, to name a few). And Happy New Year!

  1. Human oversights can be devastating … human susceptibility to distraction so often shrugged off … incidents like this incredibly painful for all alive after … your poem helps spread awareness (and hopefully caution)

    1. Thank you so much, Jazz! I really appreciate your insight and yes, I’m very thankful if this poem does indeed spread some awareness! That incident stayed with me a long time.
