Curriculum Vitae Loco

Updated 03/22/2016

I have, in the past, generally emailed an ever varying cohort of friends and acquaintances whenever a poem or article of mine is published online. I’ll probably keep that practice up, but, in addition, thought it appropriate to provide a one stop page folks can check if they a)have any idea who I am and b)care to read my crabbed thoughts as inflicted on the nearest available medium. Actually, I guess the only real concern there is letter b.

I’ll list poems from the most recent one(which link will point to the contents of the publication) and work back from there (linking older publications directly). Interspersed between the linked online poems I include my print publication. The order of appearance here roughly approximates the actual publication order.

    Thanks. Shall look through it sooner or later.

    Your promise instills in me both joy and fear.

    Quite the nature lover. I miss being able to wander in it here.

    I like it all, some very memorable lines and figures, except Bailout which defied me. Do you do more formal verse and not publish it, or just stick to the wild and free which grows like the uninhibited woods of the USA?

    By the way, there is a straight link to New Year’s Day at RHP.

    “Bailout” was a rare and perhaps ill-advised foray into the political–reaction against the too-big-to-fail crisis. Thanks for the kind words on the others.

    I’ve written mostly free verse because the writers that drew me back to poetry were Kooser, Oliver, Bly, Kinnell, etc. I’ve experimented with some forms. Did ok with the triolet and some villanelle attempts, but abominable at sonnets. Form is something Wilbur, Justice, Jarman, and others are inspiring me to spend more time on, though.

    As for the direct link, I plan to leave the main page link to the issue while it’s current so people might read more of or the whole issue, not just mine. After they archive it, I’ll probably go with the direct link.
