I’m honored and pleased that my poem “Two Hymns” was named one of the finalists in the Iron Horse Literary Review Photofinish. This was an ekphrastic piece in dialogue with a photograph supplied by IHLR. This piece as well as those of the winner and other finalists will be posted on the IHLR website on New Year’s.

Burning Down the House


The fantastically kind November guest editor of Burning House Press, Paul Hawkins, has selected two of my poems to appear in “Facing Up to the Future”

The first poem was inspired by a series of talks about trees I recently encountered at the UC botanical garden. Much love to all.

Read “No Chicken” and “We Make Our Instruments” here:
