"Carlo Matos takes a mystical sense of Azorean displacement and spins a delightful cat’s-cradle spanning from Fall River to California and featuring the burrito-seeking Johnny and Linda, a teacher in the dying Central Valley. “Fiasco” speaks in binary code to a Loon trying to map out the natural world, only to discover that “When you have no sense of direction…walls are essential to survival.” Lizzie Borden is a patron saint, turkey vultures circle, and Groundhog Day is an anthem as Matos’s poetry offers a fresh view of the Portuguese-American experience." — Katherine Vaz, author of Saudade

Three Triptychs over at Glint

Check out three of my poems over at Glint. [Big news about It's Best Not to Interrupt Her Experiments series coming soon!]




















"Marriage is Winnie Cooper’s numbers filling you with the same longing you had for her when she kissed Kevin on that rock in the pilot of The Wonder Years—his green and white jacket across her shoulders."

I review Lissa Kiernan's book of poems over at Cleaver Magazine.


























Excerpt:
Lissa Kiernan’s debut collection radiates, burns, and fluoresces like uranium glass, like a “bed of plutonium nightlights.”
