Poem on Verse Daily!

| Miscellaneous Poetry Stuff

Last summer, I wrote sonnets, lots and lots of sonnets. It was a time of exciting transition for me. I left one life behind. I started another. And, because sonnets have always been at the heart of my development as a poet (when I first decided I wanted to be a poet, I wrote a sonnet every day for a year), I often use them as a way to ground myself in uncertain or destabilizing times.

One of those poems was recently published in Southwest Review. “Wireless Doorbell” emerged out of the ghostly ringing of the doorbell that was installed at my new house, shortly after I moved to Texas. Today, I learned that this little poem continues to ring on, beyond the printed page, now featured on Verse Daily. Go, little sonnet, go!
