I found out yesterday that my poem “Being Ready,” which appeared in Fuck Art, Let’s Dance #14, has been nominated by Nostrovia! Press for the 2017 Best of the Net anthology. Thanks so much to Christopher Morgan and Jeremiah Walton for believing in my work.
My dead child is genderless, like me. You paced outside the bathroom door
saying something about not being ready, while I peed onto a stick and tuned
you out. No one is ever ready, I think. We are not batteries. And what is pregnancy
to me but being consumed by the dreams of some other machine?
