Beth Spencer of Bear Star Press asked me to reflect on the concepts, characters and composition of The Kilim Dreaming and The Spear Lily (as well as the third poem in the trilogy/triptych, The Wire Garden, which inhabits its own separate book). You can read the resulting essay on her blog There’s a Bear There:


In the new Stickman Review 9/2, three prose poems: “Dog Fennel,” “The Throw Pillow” and “Rasa” Also, four poems about my jazzbo alter ego Robinson in The Writing Disorder: If you like those, three more poems from the MS The Republic of Robinson can be read at Arabesques:, plus another at The Pedestal: Several more Robinsons will soon come out from Dead Mule.
