My newest collection The Ghost Child Ballet has been published through Kelsay Books, specifically through their Aldrich Press imprint.
Here is a quick synopsis of the collection -
In the tradition of the confessional poets, Misty Burke’s newest poetry collection is a heartfelt and emotional look at raising an autistic child. It takes the reader from the difficulties of a premature delivery to parenting an adult with autism. The Ghost Child Ballet is written in a conversational, narrative tone that uses everyday events to explore some of the bigger issues within the special needs community.
Sunny with a Chance of Bullies
A heavy drop lands by his feet
unnoticed, wet and thick with laughter.
Another torpedoes and meets its mark,
sticky rain against his cheek.
He wipes it away, ignoring the bad
weather of a beautiful day.
