New poem: Growing Up

This week, I have a gritty, dark poem featured at Leveler.

Growing Up

What a disappointment
to realize the utter measure of men.

On the clocks of universes,
you towered for seconds.

Look down.
See your cartilage erode,

feel your discs flatten,
know your shrinking bones…

Read the rest!

Thank you to the editors of Leveler for publishing “Growing Up” side-by-side with their thoughtful take on the poem.
