About Me

My photo
As the resident artist at EcoHealth, my verse these days finds inspiration in the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at Amerika-Institut of LMU München, where I edit a weekly circular of U.S. poetry, I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets—I also teach English and tutor composition.

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.
