Imperfect anthology

My Einstein poem, “In the Archive”, was published in this cool anthology for middle school students. It’s a great bunch of work by a ton of poets I admire. Order a copy!


You should buy this book


I was honored to ask to contribute to Shannon Tharp & Sommer Browning’s Poet-Librarians in the Library of Babel: Innovative Meditations on Librarianship, which was released this week. You should buy a copy.

I really enjoyed writing my piece for it, which is about the how the lives of poet-librarians in archives reflect our creative and professional tensions & connections. But the book is full of great stuff by so many poets & librarians I admire, and features one of the most satisfying indexes I have ever seen:

A dozen poems in Nine Mile

I have a big bunch of poems in the Spring 2018 anthology issue of Nine Mile Magazine, along with some wonderful discussion of the work in the issue by editor Bob Herz, with whom I read last October. It’s a great issue and I am thrilled to be included.

I especially like the Patrick Kieffer piece they also put online.
