Delighted to be back at Verse-Virtual with “Remembering the Cashew Wars” — a poem from my forthcoming collection, Dance Here. (It was originally published in the Returning to Awe chapbook.)
Also, another new poem “Reprimand” is up at Via Negativa.
Delighted to have a new poem titled “Blessed Arrogance” up at Via Negativa today. Thank you, Luisa A Igloria, for the inspiration, and Dave Bonta (as always) for the hospitality.
As many of you have probably guessed, I left the previous post up as long as possible so that as many people as possible would have the opportunity to read it. (It is a collaborative work with amu-nnadi, j. lewis, and Robert Rhodes and generously published by Creative Thresholds – deeply grateful to editor Melissa D. Johnston for bringing the sequence to a wider audience, and to Dhyan of Utopian Fragments for reblogging.)
and three at Via Negativa: Without an Umbrella and Why Is This Pumpkin Not a Chicken?
as well as a response to a ghazal from Luisa A Igloria in which I borrowed the first line of each of her couplets and replaced the second lines with something of my own: Borrowed Lines.
I’m also delighted to announce that my most recent collection, Considering Luminescence, is now available from Amazon and elsewhere.
