New work in NOÖ Journal

My poem "Detachable Sainthood" is in the new
issue of NOÖ Journal. I wasn't thinking of the
song "Detachable Penis"when I wrote the poem,
but I did have to watch that video over and over
when I was the TA in a Women's Studies class
in grad school. Not sure why it was such
a fave with my professor, but hey. We also watched
lots of Michael Jackson footage, and talked
about Madonna for hours on end.
