In 1985, David Arroyo was struck by a meteor. He was minding his own business watching Aliens for the twenty-seventh time on HBO. Since then, he’s been writing verse shimmering with the power cosmic. He’s been published by Burning Word, Stirring, and Abyss & Apex, and is a graduate of the Stonecoast MFA Program in Creative Writing. Rumor has it he’s currently teaching in China.
