Event Horizon—Coming Soon!

I’m happy to announce that my second book of poems, Event Horizon, will be available on Amazon in the next week or so. I hope that readers will check it out and pick up a copy. Event Horizon will be available in paperback and Kindle versions.

In anticipation of the book’s release, I thought I’d share the title poem, which captures my experience of driving past a cemetery one evening. When Event Horizon comes out, I’ll be sure to post about it and share the Amazon link. Thank you for reading!

Event Horizon

Snow forms
drifting constellations
in the night sky
as I drive past
the cemetery.

It’s unlit,
a blank bordered by
the lights of surrounding properties.

In a few seconds
I am past the cemetery,
but my mind has reached
an event horizon
and can’t pull away.

My thoughts seep below ground
into cavities where 
bones feel no chill
and skulls lie,
not seeing 
through black holes.
