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.

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
