I have a full-length poetry book coming out in December: Injuring Eternity, which takes its title from Thoreau, "as if we could kill time without injuring eternity." If anyone on the list would like to receive a postcard or email announcement, please send me your information. Pasted below is a sample poem.
Thank you so much for this opportunity!
Interview Huffington Post
Have such soulful
Eyes, their gray suit
Of feathers blurs and sinks
Them into the background
Like a creature in hiding
They hover below the wild
Bird feeder set up for finches
And harvest the shells, the thistle
Seed casings and what drops after
The finches and faux robins and phoebes
Have feasted. The mourning
Doves huddle and nest in the mountains
Of seed shells and dirt and make circles
With their small bird bodies turning
Into the ground, digging a place around
Them as if they were under a shrub with only
The black drops of ink from their tail feathers
Visible. In a group, they lie in wait, their dear gray
Eyes gloomy and sullen and innocent and they want
What the world desires, to be fed and comfortable
And consummated and happy.
