It is April 2023, National Poetry Month. I am recording myself reading one of my published/curated pieces of poetry each day for 30 days.

Reading # 25 of 30

This poem is titled You Will Need Food for the Journey. It is a poem from my chapbook Childproof Sky, published by Cherry Dress Chapbooks in July 2023. This poem was originally published and available online at High Shelf Press, but that journal has sadly gone out of business.
