About Me

My photo
Thanks to a residency at EcoHealth, my verse these days finds inspiration in the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at LMU M√ľnchen, where I tutor and edit circulars on poetics and composition, I'm anatomizing the prosody of Robinson's sonnets—I also teach at MVHS and lead the Amerikahaus Literary Circle.

Orison


When I consider how our time has sped,
I am amazed at all that we have done--
both bridges fared and those we dared not tread--
throughout this threefold circling of the Sun.


Yet not for this I come to you, whose bed
I share and where, my love, I thank the one
who gave me peace, revived my muse, and led
my soul to grace through touch and hearth and fun.
