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.

Frog Poem

by Matsuo Bashō
Translated by R. H. Blyth

The old pond:
a frog jumps in, –
the sound of the water.
