Here’s his piece from the Current Issue

The Things We Talk About…

You may agree with
my professor’s ex-wife
that crows always travel
in threes. We may
never agree on what
happiness is or where it
comes from. No matter how
much we talk, I’ll never know
what it feels like to be
inside of you. I’ll never
mention it again unless
you ask. No point arguing
about such things…

Mark Brunetti’s poem “My Redemption” was also published in the online magazine Citizens For Decent Literature, check it out…
