Flatman: Poems of Protest in the Trump Era now available on Amazon and Goodreads

“Flatman follows the outrages of the Trump administration from September 2018 through May 2019, from his first playground taunts of ABC reporter Cecilia Vega through his helpful suggestions to water-bomb an 800-year old cathedral. Trump didn’t just unleash a fatal virus on our country. Trump IS a fatal virus in our country. From “Flatman” to “The Parasite,” this book chronicles the reign of a villain in villanelles–and other poetic forms.”
