About Me

My photo
As the resident poet at EcoHealth Alliance, my verse finds inspiration these days in the spectre of future pandemics. For my dissertation at LMU's Amerika-Institut, I'm anatomizing the poetics of E. A. Robinson's sonnets. I also teach English at Münchner Volkshochschule and lead the Amerikahaus Literary Circle.

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.
