“To the Accused:” New poem published online

I’m posting this short blog entry a day early this week, as I wanted to let you know that The 5-2: Crime Poetry Weekly has published a new poem of mine on their website! It’s titled, “To the Accused,” and will be featured on the home page all this week.

If you had a chance to catch my interview with crime poetry editor/poet Gerald So a couple weeks ago, you know what crime poetry is and what he’s been doing over at The 5-2.  I’m proud that he liked my poem enough to share it with his readers.

    Wow, Matt. That’s a pretty amazing poem. I love the reading, too. Congratulations on your inclusion in the project.


  2. Finally had time to read. This is wonderful, Matt. Congratulations for the publishing, and for the poem. It seems like a deeper meaning to me than just the skin’s wound. Dark, but I enjoyed it.


  3. Your range as a writer is enviable, Matt. Thanks for continuously surprising me, bringing hidden talent into view. I also appreciate that you’ve been incorporating soundcloud a lot more lately so we get to hear that honeyed voice.


    1. Why thank you, Michelle – I appreciate your kind words. As I’ve told other folks before, I just write what pops into my head, and then try to sort it out afterward…fortunately, I’m the type who likes variety…doing one thing all the time would get boring!
