I’m honored to announce the publication of my poem “Fourteen” in The Suburban Review #8, Summer 2017 issue. Available now online.
The sonnet is one of my favorite forms—a compact love song that packs a punch. In “Fourteen,” I used this traditional form to explore a contemporary subject. This poem is about a fourteen year-old girl whom, motivated by boredom, decides to experiment sexually without grasping the magnitude of such acts or her own developing sexual powers.
