About Me

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

Orison


When I consider how our time has sped,
I am amazed at all that we have done

both bridges fared and those we dared not tread

throughout this fivefold circling of the Sun.

Yet not for this I come to you, whose bed
I share and where, my love, I thank the one
who gave me peace, revived my muse, and led
my soul to grace through touch and hearth and fun.


Hau'oli la hanau, Schatz.
