Two of his poems have been nominated for Pushcart Prize this year (Black Bough Poetry and Rhythm & Bones), and his chapbook and micro-chapbook are currently out sailing, looking to drop anchor.

Ankh absolutely believes that kindness is a real-life superpower which can change the place we’re in, and that everyone should open their eyes several times and look closer. You’ll find him trying to infect everyone with kindness and curiosity. Linktree: https://linktr.ee/SeaGoatScreamsPoetry Twitter @SeaGoatScreams Facebook @AnkhSpiceSeagoatScreamsPoetry.
