Poems on the Pen American blog

Three poems from my manuscript Empire are on the Pen American blog. It was exciting to be featured!

Empire takes each title from the name of a Roman Emperor. The content of each poem is conjured from a combination of research on Roman Emperors, their loves and deaths, and whatever. They are certainly not to be read as poems "about Roman Emperors" as that would result in an F in a history class. Though the Titus poem seems pretty faithful. (Pictured: the old white heads of Valerian, Titus, and Vespasian)
