Leveler

Honored that the editors of Leveler have selected my poem “The peony” for publication. Each poem they choose is featured for a week along with the editors’ comments in a section they call levelheaded. The poet rarely gets to hear what the editors are thinking, so this is a bonus, to say nothing of the considerable extra effort undertaken. Thank you, Leveler!

Clade Song

Very pleased that Tim Kahl and Joshua McKinney have published two of my poems in issue 9 of Clade Song: Asteroidea and Collocation. As a bonus, Clade Song offers poem-specific related links when you click on the animals in the sidebars. Such links are provided for each poem in the issue — quite a demonstration of above-and-beyond commitment by the editors!

Here’s Wikipedia on clade: A clade, also known as monophyletic group, is a group of organisms that consists of a common ancestor and all its lineal descendants, and represents a single “branch” on the “tree of life.”

I have been writing…

In fact, I have been writing about a scarecrow, and here’s the poem, published in Issue 4 of Rockvale Review, with my gratitude to Sandy Coomer and the RR team.

the creatures are stirring!


Can you hear the yowls and yaps, the squeals and chirps? That growling sound, the one that makes you clutch one another in your tent… that’s the sound of SpeakEasy 22: Animal Beast Creature.

The SpeakEasy poetry series returns to Bellingham on Saturday, October 20, 2018, as poets Jennifer Bullis, Elizabeth J. Colen, Paul Hunter, Jeffrey Morgan, Bethany Reid, Kimberly Roe, Ely Shipley, and Sheila Sondik explore the power of animals — persona, myth, spirit, science, and a deep wildness. The program is free and begins at 7:00pm in the Encore Room of the Mount Baker Theatre. Village Books will be on hand to sell the poets’ books. Event info on Facebook.

SpeakEasy is an occasional poetry series that emphasizes themed, audience-friendly presentations of quality poetry by Cascadia-region writers. It is produced in Bellingham, Washington, by Luther Allen, author of The View from Lummi Island, and J.I. (Judy) Kleinberg.

Come experience the animal magnetism.
