The new anthology, The Flat Water Stirs: An Anthology of Emerging Nebraska Poets includes one of my poems. I’m thrilled to be included with these strong poets. Purchase your copy here.
I’m amused by “emerging” as I’m probably a little older than most in this book. One emerges as one does.
It would help if I was not revising the wrong version of my novel. So many days… Luckily no great edits, but still.
I am writing the daily poems but am not putting all of them here, as they are pretty personal. Today’s not as much.
The crows are circling
in the rain, misted black
against the flat sky.
Their dot eyes see
creatures that will cash
out their pine forest.
The squirrels hide,
swirling up the tree,
the green is no cover.
The swallowing sounds
of paper bending and slanting
become a distortion
of ink, a digestive act
I’ve very pleased to be included in Two Cities Review with my poem Dusk. I love that poem, and am happy it’s found a home. Go check out all the poets in the issue. Great stuff.
I’m very pleased to have three poems in tiny poetry: macropoetics. Here. Really cool stuff going on there and the editors could not have been more welcoming. Check them out for sure.
Blogger has become unusable. Sad. Goodbye Page of Woe Absolved, hello Page of Woe Absolved 2.
I opened up my WP blog, here, which I’ve had for years. Will be posting there from now on.
Never name a character Lloyd because for every time you type that name, you will type every variation but the correct spelling. I’ve never backspaced so much in my life.
