Monkeybicycle & Word Riot

leave a comment »

Two more works out in July. The poem Cao: An Etymology in Word Riot, and flash fiction Leaving Aisha in Monkeybicycle. See article on Monkeybicycle in The Stranger.

“Aisha and I paddled a canoe between willows at the edge of Lake Washington, amidst spring flowers pink and yellow. She described herself as a liberal Muslim. We fell in love; became engaged. Then she said we could not marry unless I converted. For it is haram. Not permitted in Islam. And so Aisha requested I go to mosque…”
