The evidence & The evermore
Judith was surrendered to the arms of a stranger at birth who died four years later. She was adopted by a magical world of poetry thereafter.
She survived an Australian convent and the Great Alaska Quake of 1964.
She discovered her blood sister and brother in 2007.
She bore two sons, Tristan and Ethan. Ethan died July 21, 2016. His death prompted these poems.
She has been published in various anthologies including The Floating Bridge Press Review IV, The Raven Chronicles: Last Call, Ethel Zine 3 and will be published this summer in The Poetica Review and Synchronized Chaos.
