I'm excited to announce that my poem Spread Me Out has been published at Ampersand Lit in January 2017. The poem is about a speaker's journey after the death of a close family member. You can read the poem here: https://ampersandlit.com/2017/01/18/spread-me-out-by-s-r-stewart/
He’s dressed himself by nightlight
today at the cherry-stained hightop
he perches a cider glass as tall as a heron
between his trigger fingers,
over the speakers, a song everybody knows
blares— he mouths the words and dances--
the girl, two seats back smiles,
sucks ketchup from her brisket-sized fingers.
