About Me

My photo
As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the spectre of global pandemics. At LMU Munich's Amerika-Institut, where I tutor composition and poetics, I'm anatomizing the sonnets of E. A. Robinson for my dissertation. I also teach at M√ľnchner Volkshochschule and Amerikahaus.


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.

Mark Olival-Bartley
