What Rough Beast

Special thanks to What Rough Beast (a project of Indolent Books) for publishing 10 of my found poems as their April 3, 2019, post. What Rough Beast posts “A poem a day [or 10] by a different poet exploring and responding to our nation’s political reality.”

Hugely pleased to have four visual poems published in issue 7 of Hypnopomp.

From Wikipedia: “The hypnopompic state (or hypnopompia) is the state of consciousness leading out of sleep…. Its mirror is the hypnagogic state at sleep onset; though often conflated, the two states are not identical.”

The Wire’s Dream



Yesterday’s mail yielded a nice surprise: issue 41 of Carousel, a bi-annual Canadian print journal that focuses on “hybrid literature,” with two of my found poems. It took a while — I submitted my work to them in August 2016 — but was worth the wait.


Very pleased that OPEN: Journal of Arts & Letters has selected five of my found poems for publication in their Literary Arts / Mixed Forms / Other category (which pretty well describes them). Thanks, OJAL!

two more…

Always nice to start the day with a note saying that two of my found poems have been published! This time in the Glasgow-based Adjacent Pineapple, Issue 5. Juicy!

The online journal of “the most outlandish images and writing,” Brave New Word magazine, has published seven of my found-word collages in Issue #11. Thanks to Bil Sabab and BNW!

Always happy to discover a new publication focused on poetry/art hybrids and especially glad that the first issue of Human Repair Kit includes five of my found poems.

Infinity’s Kitchen

Another long-awaited publication (submitted January 2017, accepted February 2017): Infinity’s Kitchen, Issue 9, a graphic literary journal of experimental writing and art, with three of my found poems. Available online and in print.


Home from a beautiful long weekend in the Methow Valley with friends and poetry to find the latest edition of Stoneboat Literary Journal (8.2, Spring 2018) in the mailbox with three of my found poems in it. Thanks, Stoneboat!
