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.

Separation

by W. S. Merwin


Your absence has gone through me   
Like thread through a needle. 
Everything I do is stitched with its color.

Note:  A recitation can be heard here.
