Poetry

MORPHS

“What happens when poetry becomes a thrilling late night conversation? The co-authored poems in Morphs explore new ways of thinking and writing and living that were always available for people willing to take the risk of responding to each other. The back and forth leaps, jump cuts, and startling juxtapositions in these poems offer the electrifying weave, slant, and break of writers creating their own common ground.”
—Mark Wallace
Available on Lulu.

Nonfiction

POETIC OBLIGATION

Objectivist, Black Mountain, and Language poets in terms of the ‘new’ ethical criticism inspired by the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas.

Available in hardcover at Amazon and as an e-book at U of Iowa Press.

JOY AND OTHER SERIES

The poems in this collection were written between 1994 and 2002 within a transitional landscape of house, rock, and heart. They are intensely personal while attempting to objectify the very language that, for me, constitutes the personal, the person I am. They are autobiographical only in the way historiography is the study of how history is written. That history is composed of the collision between experiences of the body, of the divine, and of language.
