About Me

My photo
As the resident artist at EcoHealth, I pen verse these days inspired by the specter of future pandemics; for my dissertation at Amerika-Institut of LMU München, where I edit a weekly circular on poetry, I'm anatomizing the prosody of E. A. Robinson's sonnets—I also teach English, tutor composition, and lead a literary circle.

Lake Wildwood, 2016

As we gabble
  over root beer,
playing Scrabble
  Easter morning,

Nana smiles,
  aptly regal,
laying tiles
  Q10+U1+E1+E1+N1.

Mark Olival-Bartley
