Entropy: The Birds

I am always thrilled when Entropy: The Birds accepts my work for publication. Today, they’ve published three of my found-bird poems along with a gorgeous raven photo by Joe Meche. (There’s a little heart below the poems and bio. If you like the poems, I’d be hugely grateful if you’d click it. Thanks.)

tonight.

Should you find yourself otherwise unengaged this evening, Friday, March 26, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific, Zoom on over to RASP, the Redmond Association of Spokenword, where I’ll be holding forth as the evening’s featured poet. On offer will be some found poems and some conventional-form poems, plus some conversation and a chance to share your own poem(s) during the open-mic portion of the evening. Please join me! (Zoom link here.)

Lovely, in these very dark days of almost winter (headlights required at 8:30 a.m.) to find that my work has been published in two online journals: two pieces in Issue 12 of Juke Joint and two in Issue 8.4 of Star 82 Review, here and here. Thanks to the editors of these journals for muscling ahead in spite of the odds and for taking a chance on found poetry.
