Buenos Aires, my new chapbook from Rye House Press, is now available for purchase! Click on the link at left and buy it!

These poems are 100% organic, non-GMO poems, written sustainably and locally by yours truly, assembled by Jeremiah Gould himself in NH and not in some sweatshop by underpaid, malnourished children, and further, no animals were injured in these operations. Buy them, read them, and enjoy responsibly or, better yet, irresponsibly!

Here's a snap, courtesy of Jeremiah, of the back cover:

And here's what Jeremiah writes about the book:
The poems in Buenos Aires unwind as a ball of twine or memories unwind – looped and nestled, moving with and against each other – filled with the humorous, self-aware, awkward, and poignant; all within the steady flow of narrative found in stories and travel. Experienced separately, these poems create large, voluminous structures that have the properties of sculpture. Experienced together, you can see what could be as direct a map of a life’s journey as one can get through a book of poems, asking that you read “as a surveyor / to determine the lines between things / where things ended and things began.”

Thanks, Jeremiah!


Thanks, Chris Tonelli, for hosting me. Thanks to my fellow readers: Stephanie Anderson, Megan Burns, and Dan Chelotti. Thanks, Raleigh, for being hospitable.

Some schtuff is happening. I have a poem forthcoming in CutBank out of the University of Montana, Missoula. Very excited about that! Richard Hugo, your book of poem letters was amazing.

Rye House Press will be publishing my chapbook Buenos Aires this month! Thanks Jeremiah Gould! The timing is wonderful: I'll have two chapbooks coming out this month: this one and City of Tomorrow by Greying Ghost Press. Both Rye House and Greying Ghost will be publishing work by some amazing poets this year and I urge you to buy everything you can from these two nobly, worthy, independent presses.

Thanks to Dan Boehl, Cindy St. John, and John-Michael Frank for the warm reception in April in Austin at the Fun Party Reading Series. I had a great time.

I'm reading in Raleigh, NC, in mid-July at the next So & So Series. Thanks Chris Tonelli. I'm looking forward to reading with Stephanie Anderson, Megan Burns, and Thibault Raoult. Also very much looking forward to seeing Chris's new bookstore, So & So Books.

I'm reading in Chicago in August at a new reading event the Marble Room Series at the Parlor, co-hosted by Kathy Rooney. Thanks, Kathy. More details on this one forthcoming.

I hope to put together a reading in Oklahoma City in early August.

I love you,
