New poems published: “Moscow’s Rejected Margaritas,” “Lady, Maid, Invocation,” and “Highway Drone”

Three of my poems appear in the Summer 2018 issue of Penumbra. These include “Moscow’s Rejected Margaritas,” which plays on Mikhail Bulgakov’s brilliant novel The Master and Margarita; “Lady, Maid, Invocation” one of my Four Songs for Lady Macbeth, in which Lady Macbeth’s waiting-woman narrates the events of Shakespeare’s play and decides to give voice to her own ambitions; and “Highway Drone,” part of a series of Texas-focused poems.
