New Chapbook



I'm thrilled to have in hand my new chapbook from Kattywompus Press. The look and feel of the book is terrific. It was a pleasure to work with a press so conscientious, and so excited about the project.
These poems are inspired by two artists. Larry Towell is a photojournalist whose sensitive and unflinching images chronicle human suffering, joy and tenderness. James Turrell's sculptures work with natural and man-made light to create spaces that invite us in to challenge perception and engage in reflection. I was moved by their philosophical outlooks and poetic ways of speaking. It was a pleasure to spend time with their work and words.
I will be reading from this slender collection in Youngstown, Ohio; Appleton, Wisconsin; and Buffalo.
