She founded and curates Poethead; a poetry blog which is dedicated to platforming work by women poets, their translators and editors. She is an active member of Fired!

tabernacle

gold-bodied a beetle dives
into muck and dirt, a silica

of glitter on his porch,
his wing.

there is no evidence of his home now
it is vanished,

small soil tabernacle.
he carried in the sun.
