About Me

My photo
As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the specter of future pandemics. For my dissertation at LMU's Amerika-Institut, I'm anatomizing the poetics (especially the prosody) of E. A. Robinson's sonnets. I also teach at M√ľnchner Volkshochschule and lead the Amerikahaus 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.
