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 Münchner Volkshochschule and Amerikahaus.

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.
