slights: my new tiny poems from here not there

I basically quit writing poetry again, as I have multiple times before for reasons I explain in various other places, after the overwhelming and exhausting deluge in September, 2016, the three books I wrote in sequence then. After I got to Olympia, I started writing these “tiny” poems, cryptic Zen-koan-like things, all my Pittsburgh words having been left back there, I guess, an evolving book called slights: my new tiny poems from here not there, most recently updated in June, 2020. I will keep writing whatever comes to me out of the blue whenever it decides to arrive and add it to the manuscript as it wends along its way. Full PDF as usual. Paperback now available at cost via
