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.


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.
