My poem “The Fragmented Poet Files a Police Report” won first place (long category) in SFPA’s 2017 poetry contest

I haven’t been writing a lot of poetry lately, so I was especially pleased to learn recently that my poem “The Fragmented Poet Files a Police Report” was selected as the first place winner in the long category of the Science Fiction Poetry Association’s 2017 contest. My entry deals with the abuse of power by people who are meant to be protectors of the peace, and features an always-on networked environment not unlike what we find on social media today.

You can read the press release, with a list of the other winners, on the SFPA blog.

You can now read my poem, and the rest of the excellent winning poems, online for free(!) on the SFPA’s contest page.
