Poem Published

Online magazine Infuze has published my poem, St. Francis & the Birds.

The poem started as part of my WIP, from a scene where aspiring writer (and recent corpse) Maya Daniels is interviewed by magazine writer David Wagner. But the scene was too long/talky -- and the poem was too on-the-nose -- so that section was cut. Since the poem could stand on its own, I gave it a shot at Infuze.

While searching for synonyms for "omen," I came across "auspice," which technically means "observation of and divination from the actions of birds." Discovering that was the coolest part of revising the poem.
