Poetry

I’ve been writing poems in fits and starts (literally) ever since I was a teenager, usually writing furiously for a while, then a long hiatus to catch up with myself. You can access from the drop-down menu the three collections of poems (Li Po-ems, Harvest Moon, and In the Dark) I wrote in a grief-fueled frenzy during September, 2016, after a 20 year hiatus, strangely beautiful poems, I think. I also include two compilations of some of the many poems I wrote between 1975-95, Mornings After and Beginning Was,  and an ongoing monograph of the “tiny” poems I’ve been writing since I got to Olympia, under the working title “slights: my new tiny poems from here not there.”  I just keep adding to it as I write more. And there are also a  few miscellaneous poems I wrote in 2017-18. For each book there is a PDF and, for all but slights, sound files of my readings of the poems in their respective collections.

All of the books (except for “slights”) are also available in paperback form, at cost, on Amazon.com. You can access the titles via my Amazon author’s page link, above. In the Dark and Harvest Moon are also available in audiobook form on Audible.com.
