About Me

My photo
As the resident artist at EcoHealth, I pen verse these days inspired by the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at Amerika-Institut of LMU M√ľnchen, where I edit a weekly circular on poetry, I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets—I also teach English, tutor composition, and lead a literary circle.


A Birthday Limerick for Carrie Etter

There once was a woman of Bath
who strode down a Chaucerian path,
where scurrilous verse
and, oh, so much worse
lay abed like fractals in math.
