They didn’t warn me
When I was running wild
The dragons breathing fire
In the backyard at night
Our nominations are things of beauty
Super stoked to have just learnt that the editors of the Cincinnati Review have put forward my poem ‘White Street' - published in their Issue 10.1 earlier this year - as one of their nominations for a Pushcart Prize. You can read ‘White Street’ here. And here’s more from the Cincinnati Review editors at their blog.

We end, then, where we began: with thoughts of nature and the trees that make books — and therefore authors — possible.
READ more from my review of Lantana Strangling Ixora, a book of poems by Sasenarine Persaud, at the latest issue of the Caribbean Review of Books here. The latest issue features poetry by Shivanee Ramlochan, reviews by Vladimir Lucien and Ishion Hutchinson and much more!

Douen Islands is today featured at Antilles, the blog of the Caribbean Review of Books (CRB). There is a great introduction by CRB editor Nicholas Laughlin and an interview featuring me and Kriston Chen discussing the collaboration.
Invited in from the wilderness and dark, with supernatural deformities erased, the douen looks more and more like any Trinidadian of the post-Independence generation: mischievous but bewildered, uncertain of his social birthright, possibly hapless, possibly not helpless - Nicholas Laughlin
