About Me

My photo
Born and raised on O'ahu, I now live in Maxvorstadt. As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the specter of future pandemics. For my dissertation at Amerika-Institut (LMU), I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets. I also tutor writing, teach English, and lead a book club.

for Rita

There once was a wordsmith in Munich
who sported a Kerala-hewn tunic;
although riding the same bridge
as the writers of Cambridge,
her path was a Joycean runic.

Note:  A recitation can be heard here.
