2 poems playing on Ismaelillo

Stoked to be included in the inaugural issue of January Review Journal (January 30, 2019). My sincere thanks to poet & editor Simon Anton Diego Baena for giving two of my poems such a fine home! “Ismaelillo what is blue to such ephemera” & “what survives”, these (persona) poems are part of a work I’m developing that alludes to & plays on Jose Marti’s first collection of poems Ismaelillo (1882). Written in exile Ismaelillo was dedicated to his then three-year old son.
