Two New Poems Online: Hawai’i Pacific Review & concīs - April 5, 2017

It has been a few months since I posted links to my new poetry available on the web. (These things happen when you start a new academic position, as I recently have at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana.)

That said, here is “Old Tyme with a y, a brief meditation on time, with thanks to the editors at Hawai’i Pacific Review who published it.

Also: a pair of short poems in Chris Lott’s lovely little journal, concīs, an online venue for brevity. They are “The Book of Sex” and “We Live Our Lives through Other People’s Bodies.” The former had previously appeared in the Potomac Review, the latter in the Laurel Review.

Thanks too to Chris for the Pushcart Prize nomination! Stay tuned for more new poetry, to be posted later today.
