solstice anthology

Enormously pleased to have two poems in the hot-off-the-press anthology, Solstice: Light & Dark of the Salish Sea (Chuckanut Sandstone Press). Edited by Carla Shafer, the collection features the work of 29 poets in two sections, Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice. I have a poem in each section and will be reading the summer poem as part of the online book launch on Sunday, April 11, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific. The reading is free on Zoom, but advance registration is required. Would love you to join us (and I’ll be reading second, so don’t be late!).

Solstice is available for purchase through Village Books.

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.)

Lammergeier

Very pleased to have a found poem, night, in Issue 9 of Lammergeier.

(The high-mountain-dwelling lammergeier, also known as Bearded Vulture, Gypaetus barbatus, is held sacred by Tibetans, has a 9-foot wingspan, and eats primarily bones, which it drops from a great height to reveal the delicious marrow.)

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.)

One Sentence Poems

I love the online journal One Sentence Poems and am very grateful when they publish one of mine, including “It’s open,” which has just appeared. (Links to others in the sidebar at left.)

The Inflectionist Review

As promised, yet another poem published: “Lesson” appears in Issue 12 of The Inflectionist Review, edited by John Sibley Williams and A. Molotkov, and alongside numerous poets whose work I admire. Very grateful.

Claw & Blossom

After a quiet spell in February, it looks like there’s a little run of new publications showing up. Very happy to have my poem “Cabin” published in Issue 8 of Claw & Blossom.

Riddle with Arrows

In assembling the pandemic issue of Riddled with Arrows, editor Shannon Connor Winward created a choose-your-own-route-through-the-7-stages-of-isolation experience that begins on the RwA 4.1 page and allows you to meander through related batches of writing. My found poem appears on the Scavenge for food page and I’m honored to be along on the adventure.

A) GLIMPSE) OF)

Produced in Athens, Greece, and edited by Dimitra Ioannou, A) GLIMPSE) OF) has just published five of my found poems in the journal’s Feministic Series. Thank you, Dimitra!

Pamenar Press

Three more of my found poems have found a home at Pamenar Press, “an independent cross-cultural, multilingual, experimental publisher, based in the UK, Canada and Iran.” I’m honored.

Word For/Word

Very pleased that Word For/Word has muscled through against the odds and published five of my found poems. The pieces were submitted nearly a year ago for Volume 36, which was originally slated for summer. So here’s a little dose of summer for you. Thanks, WF/W!

Rise Up Review

In all the distractions of the day, I failed to notice that one of my found poems was published in the election-day issue of Rise Up Review. Thanks, belatedly, to the RUR team.

What Are Birds?

Not sure I can answer the question, but am nonetheless very pleased that What Are Birds? has included one of my found poems in the current combined 2.4/3.1 issue. Cover art by Mark Blickley.

TinFish Journal

TinFish Journal, Issue 21, is themed Rage & Hope, and I’m very pleased that the editors have selected one of my found poems for each section: rage and hope.

Please join me in my wish that 2021 favors hope.

deLuge Journal

Very pleased to have three found poems in deLuge Journal, Issue 6.1, pages 50-52. Thanks to founder/editors Sue Scavo and Karla Van Vliet and to the wonderful poets and artists whose work appears in these pages.

round and round

Wreath or lifesaver or spinning dreidel…
with my warmest wishes to you for a colorful season and a luminous new year. j.i.k.

double thanks

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.
