Five Poems at Puerto del Sol

Thanks to editor Tyler Julian, I have five new poems up at the Puerto del Sol blog. The font is quite small--I'm sure due to formatting issues--but if you are up to the challenge, have a look. Thanks so much for continuing to read this blog in the post-blog world.

UPDATE: Poet Carol Berg tells me viewing these on a cell phone make the font easier to read.

Radio Interview

Friends, I was interviewed by David Cheezum on Radio Free Palmer in Alaska, if you'd like to have a listen. To be honest, I still haven't listened--a little nervous about hearing myself, but David was charming and warm and I'm sure you'd enjoy listening to him!

Pittsburgh Poetry Houses

Ever since I heard of the Pittsburgh Poetry Houses, I wanted to be a part of it. Self-described as " A few tiny houses scattered about the city of Pittsburgh each with four poems free for the taking," this is an admirable public art project. AND one of those tiny colorful houses is at Randyland, eeek!

So it's with a real thrill that I announce that editor Sarah Boyle selected my poem "Nocturne without Counterexample" for inclusion (previously published in the Baltimore Review). That means my poem has been to Randyland, though I have not (yet)!

Check out the whole issue. Or all the issues--go for it! Each poem is short because it needs to fit on a small paper to go in the tiny houses, so if you want shorter poems, this is your source.
