A “final” draft of DEAD UNCLES is off to the editors at Driftwood Press. So excited to begin the book building process again. I’ll be part of Driftwood’s virtual reading on Dec. 18th. Details coming soon.
Mark Friday, December 11 at 730PM EST in your calendar for the official virtual release party for SAGITTARIUS A*! More details as our roster of guest poets, artists and friends comes together.
I’m contributing some videos of poems to a couple of great projects. I have way too many submissions out to journals, sharing new work I’ve been cranking out the past month and half. Writing that Madonna cento made me start writing lots of poems inspired by song lyrics. I’ve been writing new fiction too, but the arc of fiction is much longer than poetry, even as the work feels easier and more fun.
Read the announcement here:
SAGITTARIUS A* landed last week. Very exciting. I’ve been overwhelmed by the support, appreciation, the humbling notes from readers all around the world.
On 10/10, we had a fun, safe, masked, socially-distant reading/signing.

from Sagittarius A*.
“After” is one of the small poems near the end of the chapbook and intertwines ideas about death and the nature of time, pondering how we see those things in the real and the perceived.
First, don’t forget to pre-order Sagittarius A* here.
Second, once I have proper stock, I’ll be selling autographed copies on this site.
Third, I’ll also be selling branded Sagittarius A* bookmarks – one side with the bright, gorgeous title bar, the other side with headshots and blurb text. The headshots will scale from everyone-friendly to NSFW, with the price escalating as such. 25% of the bookmark sales will be going to the LGBTQ Freedom Fund, a great organization doing amazing work with LGBTQ+ folks in jails and immigration facilities. (I use the word facilities loosely.) You can learn more about what they do and support them here.
Two poems debuted last week at No Contact, a very cool NYC based publication.
“Fever” and “Unmute” were written during and about the pandemic. No apologies to any colleagues who might “see” themselves in “Unmute.”
I wrote an entire chapbook worth of pandemic poems. Not sure there’s much to do with them. Writing them was exorcism as much as anything else.
