Walking outside in late March, twenty twenty. The air was astonishing with the scent of blossoming trees and once, strangely, a great span of suntan lotion. I had the idea that I was fully smelling another human. Without cars the colors of a human’s skin were rising into the air and taking up a great […]
Buy the new issue of Beacon Quarterly, containing The Dweller, by me. I am in absolute love with this graphic. Makes it look like I directed a film in France in the early 70s. The only higher praise I can possibly think of is if it made me look like a French actress in the […]
It was so much fun creating art for Meat for Tea magazine‘s virtual issue release earlier this month. I also read my poem “The Fulfillment House”, originally published in MfT’s ’19 issue. I’ll always be grateful to MfT for picking up that poem, which I think is a very good one, and which I was […]

At last my Covid-delayed copy of Salt Hill’s megaissue has arrived. You can find two of my poems, “Heliostat” and “Gag”, in the black half.
I am working on a chapbook about human-animal transformations in art. This is an excerpt from my observation of Girl with Puppy, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, 1770, located in the Alte Pinokothek in Munich. Please check back periodically: I hope to have this illustrated chapbook available for purchase this summer (a lot depends on the loosening of COVID restrictions, when I will […]
