About Me

My photo
As the resident poet at EcoHealth, my verse finds inspiration these days in the spectre of global pandemics. At LMU Munich's Amerika-Institut, where I tutor composition and poetics, I'm anatomizing the sonnets of E. A. Robinson for my dissertation. I also teach at Münchner Volkshochschule and Amerikahaus.

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

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

Mark Olival-Bartley
