New Poems Featured at Raft

Three of my new poems (inclusing audio files) are featured on the new online literary magazine Raft. These are poems where I was experimenting with form - two poems that use adapted computer code (javascript, perl and a little splash of xml) to write lyrics.  Another poem, "Dear Real Life" is an exploded sonnet - a sonnet that speaks in two voices written in two columns. 

November is Poem a Day Month too!

Beginning November 1, I will be participating in another poem-a-day excercise throughout the month thanks to the lovely California poet, Molly Fisk. There is something so powerful about a daily writing practice (it's how my book Inheritance  came about! Writing a poem a day riding the subway into and out of Manhattan from Brooklyn.)  I'm looking forward to whatever comes about!
