I was thrilled to have three poems featured in the Occulum recently. Two of them involve the images below.
I have a long (for me) poem in the latest “sexy” issue of The Birds We Piled Loosely.
I’m thinking I may rework this one as a looping/never ending electronic piece during National Poetry Month, just need to write a much longer version first!
Here’s the actual record this poem is based on:

I have some new poems lately in the world. Some of them are written in purple.
The Official Jam of the Summer is the Startup Chime in My Hearing Aids, Comedown Music (for a Radio Shack Billboard), Comedown Music (for an Indexical), & Comedown Music (for a Casket), in Glittermob, September, 2016
Very excited to have three poems in the latest issue of Posit Journal. Two have very long titles: That The Lake Would Still Be Frozen Had Not Occurred To Me, But Can’t We Just Leave Tornado Alley Though, & Tinnitus News.You should definitely check out the rest of the issue, especially the visual art.
Not that my poems are true or real or about anything, but when I was in Texas recently I snuck up behind my childhood home and took a picture of the honeysuckle bush that’s in the first poem. Look!
It’s about the honeymoon trip Kelly and I took to Iceland in December 2003. Here’re some photos I took from bus windows while we were there.
