I’m delighted to have two poems in issue 11.1 of The Normal School from California State University at Fresno. Here’s “My Kind” (this whimsical romp):

I Was Ketchup On My Own Sleeve

I’m so happy to see a re-run of my poem “Integrating the Shadow” at New World Review. This poem was originally published in Redheaded Stepchild and later appeared in my collection, I Ate the Cosmos for Breakfast, as well as in Verse Daily, Recours au Poème, and Ishaan Literary Review. I wrote this poem years ago, and I love to think of it out there now traveling around on its own.

Nikesh Murali Reads “In Another Dimension, We Are Making Love”

The world drifts like a madness inside you

I’m very happy to have two poems on the myth of Icarus featured at the University of Leicester’s Creative Writing Blog for World Poetry Day!  These two poems have never been paired before, as “You Were a Bird; You Are the Sea” was collected in I Ate the Cosmos for Breakfast, while “Stomp the Ground” was written later and appeared in Southern Humanities Review. Happy World Poetry Day, everyone!
