The Trip Up is a poem about feeling different because of a chronic illness. When people find out, or when you tell them, reactions are mostly uncomfortable. In one moment you become “an other” and people become unsure around you.
You can read the poem here in the latest issue of Rogue Agent.
There’s another great episode available of Poetry Pea’s Haiku Pea podcast. This one is about animals!
The podcast is also available on YouTube.
I couldn’t pass up the chance to try my hand at some ekphrastic haiku for the Poetry Pea podcast. I was luckily enough to have one of my entries chosen to be read during the show.
(It’s a different one from the image posted here.)
You can listen to the podcast or read the transcript here!

Thank you to Lorette from The Ekphrastic Review for publishing my poem ‘The Ghost of Me’. The poem is based on this wonderful painting called ‘Sevilla en Fiestas’ by Gustavo Bacarisas (Spain) 1915.
