About Me

My photo
Thanks to a residency at EcoHealth, my verse these days finds inspiration in the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at LMU München, where I tutor composition and edit a poetry weekly, I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets—I also teach at MVHS and lead the Amerikahaus Literary Circle.


Neue Wunder

von Rose Ausländer

Im Traumorient
vieltausend Nächte verbringen.

Mit Menschen und Dingen
Freundschaften schließen.

Neue Verse und
Wunder erfinden.

New Wonders

by Rose Ausländer,
translated by Mark Olival-Bartley

Spend many thousand nights
in the Orient of dreams

Close friendship
with people and things

Forge new verse
and wonders

Note:  A recitation can be heard here.
