I review Jeff Encke’s (book) and write about David Hinton’s (book) for Web Del Sol Review of Books.
(It’s pouring in Seattle. There are meteors showering tonight. Book club was at my house this evening, the wind is battering at my window. I love concurrencies.)
New work appears in the summer issue of Goblin Fruit. Many thanks to Kate Durbin for her help in revisions.
New to the poetry blog scene, Alex Gallo-Brown has started Poem Box: A Community Forum for Literature and the Arts. Check him out, help him out, leave him comments! His brother just had a wonderful show at a community center in Ravenna and you can see some of his photographs that Alex has posted.
There are some things chasing around my head about timing and mis-timing, but it hasn’t settled yet. Things seem to be in starts and stops lately. Jubilant trip to Wyoming follows with spilling two pounds of black beans on the floor of the PCC. I don’t know how these things connect yet, but they must. I’m currently reading Jeff Encke’s Most Wanted: A Gamble in Verse. By reading, I mean playing. It is a deck of cards, and I hope to play rummy tonight with a good friend and see what transpires. I forgot until this afternoon that Jessi once dreamt about a deck of poetry cards and Juan Felipe Herrera’s workshop.
I’ve been casting my own cards about for a while now. How have I been in Seattle since October?
