"Delicate Webbing" - Nightmare Magazine
My writing explores the darkness within myself and my past. This horror flash is about a frighteningly unhealthy relationship. I hope readers experience the uncomfortableness the narrator feels for participating in something profane and yet falling head-first into it.

"Disrespectfully" - The Deadlands

This is the shortest poem I've ever written, comprised of ~60 words and 2 stanzas. These are the words of a lionhearted ghost, whom I've ensured is now resting peacefully.

Locus Magazine review for "Georgia Clay Blood" 

"Full of powerful and moving imagery, it echoes with a sense of time, and a look forward in a future that’s still a work in progress."

"They'll Keep You Gestated" - Death in the Mouth (Anthology)

I was craving a nightmare set in a bright, pristine hallway. This psychological horror short story is my fucked up ode to liminal spaces.

"How to Lay Down Your Burdens" - Air and Nothingness Press (Anthology)

Epistolary stories are my favorite to tell. Letters, diary entries, sermons, and a conjure woman's log book are ways I tell this historical southern gothic about one woman's righteous vengeance. It is inspired by the historical and beloved (especially by me) spiritual 'Down By the Riverside'.

"I Shall Not Surrender" - Anathema Magazine

There's a Confederate monument off MLK Avenue in my hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee. It's on the east side of town, the side my elders still call the colored side. Our side.
While this is a southern gothic poem, more importantly, this is a declaration.

"Georgia Clay Blood"Fantasy Magazine

My mind only turns to one thing when driving between those infinite, barren fields in Georgia. The pain. The torture. I was born on this land and am not far removed from the suffering. This southern gothic poem is my thorny testimony.

"Black Girls in Castles"Mixed Mag

In high school, a teacher told me I was a "bleeding heart liberal" and that I wouldn't make it far in life as a result. Fuck that guy.

"The Deathing Room" - FIYAH Magazine of Black Speculative Fiction

In defiance of death, I wrote this horror poem for myself when I lost one of my best friends. It's bloody and heartbreaking and insolent.
