(all first published in Bayou Magazine 63, University of New Orleans, 2015)
Jane Miller was the judge. Of the poems she wrote:
“The group of poems culminating in the post-apocalyptic 'The Loneliness of the Middle Distance Transmissions Aggregator,' with our destroyed environment for a subject, is terrifying and unsettling…A mere, singular voice tries to make sense, make life, out of chaos. Time, history, intimacy, and power, all these themes rise and fall in a lyricism that belies a dark, computerized world. The ambition of this poem is impressive."
Thanks, Jane. Thanks Bayou.
