close, but…


Congratulations to Lytton Smith,
whose collection, The Square,
was selected as winner of
The 2020 New Michigan Press / DIAGRAM chapbook contest.
I am honored to have my chapbook,
Emphatic Pajamas,
a collection of found stories,
selected, from among some 400 submissions,
as a finalist.

Maintenant

Wow. Just received my copy of Maintenant 14, an annual journal of contemporary Dada writing and art. It’s an ambitious collection of some 260 pages, about half visual works, and I’m thrilled to have one of my found poems included.

EAP: The Magazine

Always a happy surprise when a poem is accepted, and another surprise to find that it has been published without further notice! Thanks to Exterminating Angel Press: The Magazine for including one of my found poems in the Spring 2020 issue.

found poem: what makes

found poem: fear

poem

Overtaken by a rash of rhyming and curse as a prompt, I wrote this poem in the other Before-time: before The Election, before 45 was a poisonous number.

Thanks to editor Jerome Betts and Lighten Up Online, it has now found its way into Issue 50 and the world alongside much rhyming, much wry commentary, and some very clever poems.
