My poem “Bruce King’s Chickens” was published!

A couple of months ago, a friend of mine emailed me about a poetry contest hosted by the 200 New Mexico Poems project.  This project was conceived as part of the New Mexico Centennial celebration.  The poems are online for now, but they may be printed in an anthology in the future.  I sure hope so!

You can read my poem here:  Bruce King’s Chickens

I’m really excited because this is the first poem I’ve published.  It was inspired by my experiences showing chickens at county and state fairs as a child.
Thanks for reading!


About glossarch

The word "glossarch" doesn't exist. At least, not yet. But let's pretend it does for a second. The first part is "gloss," a word that comes to us from Ancient Greek via Latin and English. It means "language." The second part also comes from Ancient Greek and can mean "having power over." So "glossarch" means simply "language controller." So what am I doing making up words? Well, I made up an entire language once. It's called Angosey. So I'm the Glossarch of Angosey. I'm currently a doctorate student in volcano seismology (a branch of geophysics). I enjoy writing fiction and poetry, launching balloons, programming, and hanging out with my lovely wife! Follow me on Twitter!
