Blue Spectra will be on page 356 of the 2016-2017 San Diego Poetry Annual; they announced the poet-page layout today.
Here’s a bit from that poem:
it’s close, maybe, to the way the
tender flesh of rose petal just now grows
outside your window, swells slow and hidden,
while dirt and water percolate through sunlight
to brew a delicate math of petal over petal,
interleaving into circle, into a crown atop
the green; something grows toward soon and
isn’t seen until one moment unsuspecting
the bud begins, the bloom peaks out
through a shock of violet.
