I’d like to thank The Camel Saloon for publishing “Turtle-Whisper” today — this poem was written for Peter Street as a token of gratitude.
I’d also like to thank Via Negativa for inspiration and hospitality: “Bamboo” (written for Todd Mercer and Michaeleen Kelly) went up yesterday,
and also at Via Negativa, “Society Rag” — Dave Bonta has termed this “bird-nerd poetry” — it is a roll-call of woodpeckers.
By the way, if you’re interested in translation, take a look at some of the fascinating work going at Via Negativa in the new Poetry of the Other Americas series — check it out!
Thanks again for stopping by and reading.
