More poems from my ongoing sonnet sequence, “2016.31,” “2016.33,” “2016.36: Preface” (a long prefatory poem), and “2017.01: Afterword,” are in the third issue of Always Crashing. I’m delighted to share the pages with Louis Armand, Jill Khoury, Joe Sacksteder, Claire Marie Stancek, John Trefry, and many others.
There will also be a two night reading celebrating the issues release at 7:00 p.m. on May 28 and 29, 2020, via Zoom. RSVP at https://bit.ly/2WGDD7d. I’ll be reading for a few minutes on the 29th.
Two more poems from my new project, “Meditations at Oneonta” and “Humid Figures and a Handful of Dust,” are in Pamenar Online Magazine. Honored to have these in this excellent and supportive international journal. I also recorded “Meditations at Oneonta”; you can listen to it here.
“2019.04,” the first published poem from the second volume of my ongoing sonnet sequence (vol. 1: 1 2013-2017; vol. 2: 2018-?), is in issue 17 of Rabid Oak.
This spring, I’m teaching two brand new courses at Hartwick College: a writing-intensive course covering the poetry of Adrienne Rich, Audre Lorde, Eileen Myles, and Claudia Rankine; and a senior seminar on John Ashbery. Lots of great poetry! The syllabi:
ENGL 247 Four Modern American Poets: Rich, Lorde, Myles, and Rankine
ENGL 470 John Ashbery in Context
“2016.16,” “2016.17,” “2016.18,” “2016.21,” “2016.22” and “2016.26,” more sonnets from my ongoing sequence, are in the new issue of Mannequin Haus. Thanks so much to Fin Sorrel for bringing them into the world–I’m particularly happy to finally see these particular poems from the sonnet project in print(/online). They’ve been a long time coming and seem nicely timely in their untimeliness.
Also, listen to a few of these poems here.
“2016.05” and “2016.08,” poems from my ongoing sonnet sequence, are in the tenth-anniversary issue of the Sugar House Review.
Well, it looks like my second poetry collection, The Shape of Things (Salò, 2017), has sold out. Interested readers, however, can now access a copy on Academia.edu. So check out The Shape of Things (for the first time).
