The Living Tide (Manuscript in Progress)
These two poems, "Flight" and "The Search," both appeared in the West Coast-based, online poetry Web site, Vistant Lit, in 2021. "The Search" also appeared in Voices de la Luna out of Texas. I have been working on this manuscript since 2004.
Lovers Versus Clowns (Manuscript in Progress)
I have been working on this manuscript, on and off, for over two decades. This poem, "Tipsy Bozo Before the After Party," is an example.
Season of Flowers and Dust (2007)
The nature cycle, Season of Flowers and Dust (Goose River Press, 2007), contains winter sonnets as the book's middle section of poetry. The five sonnets arose out of a middle-1990s winter in Portland, Oregon. Two of sonnets here first appeared in Attic (MD) and sniffylings (OR). There are nine total in the book.
Commentary on Poetry (approx. 2005-2016)
I reviewed and published book reviews and more extended commentary on poetry from around 2005 to 2016, and was a regular reviewer for The Baltimore Review (prior print version) and Boxcar Poetry Review (online, CA-based), and then The Broadkill Review (online, DE-based), and JMWW (online, MD & CA-based). As the British poet Andrew Marvell said on another subject, if I had "but world enough and time," I would continue with regular reviewing. In fact, I do have the itch again.
