So I was gone for two months or so. Maybe you noticed. Partly, it was nice to be away, to forget about thinking of new posts. But, in truth, my attention was elsewhere: my book, work, moving to a new place, and so forth. But, that list is incomplete and with the appearance of the feature in the latest issue in Poets & Writers, it seems disingenuous to not mention it here: I got engaged this summer. Recent poems like "Love Song with Ruin" are for her; my next collection of poems will be, I'm guessing, something different altogether from the previous three. I'm fantastically happy and it will be interesting to see what sort of art comes from that.
In the meantime, I don't expect this space to become DishCentral but I did want to share this with you. Thanks for reading, as always.
