3 poems at Burning House Press

Thrilled to have 3 not-uplifting poems in Burning House Press to start off National Poetry Month, accompanied by a picture of a man who is not me.

Impersonation & Manual Random Hill in Public Pool

Thrilled to have some poems up in Public Pool alongside many writers I really admire. Also, I have been using this image of me at a printing press for an author photo lately, and just realized it contains my “concentrating face.”

Two poems at Sea Foam Magazine

Excited to have two poems up at Sea Foam Magazine today, “I’m a Sleepwalking Cheetah With a Heart Full of Lip Balm,” which is relatively new, and “Big Money for Broken Gold,” which I wrote in like 2013.

The Broken Record I Want To Sound Like in The Birds We Piled Loosely

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:

Putting On Mourning for Aelis, from typewriter.city

2017 is going to be an exciting year, and part of that excitement comes from a new thing I am doing. In early 2016 i invested a paycheck from a freelance gig from a major publishing house in a screenprinting set up and decent printer, with the intention of starting a tiny little press.

The result is typewriter.city, and the first title is Katharine Diehl’s PUTTING ON MOURNING FOR AELIS, which is a freaky, witchy little book of poems. I’m thrilled with how it came out, and they’ve been flying off the proverbial shelves. Get yours before I run out! Only 60 were made.

Three poems & some audio at Hot Tub Astronaut

Jess at Hot Tub Astronaut recently published three new poems of mine, mostly written in response to the Poetry Prompt Generator I build for the Found Poetry Review earlier this year.

Also, HTA paired some rehearsal recordings of the sound performance I did in Brooklyn in May as a soundtrack to the pieces, so you have something to listen to while you read some poems based on 100 year old stationery and automotive periodicals.
