Eunoia Review

Three new poems now online at Eunoia: 296, a translation of “Confession”, one of my favourite Baudelaire poems; 321, a little study of a tropical bird; 322, a piece based on one of C├ęzanne’s smaller “Bathers” paintings. Eunoia runs through WordPress, so if you like the work, give it an up or a reblog. Cheers!

Electric Windmill Issue 7

The guys at Electric Windmill decided to give me another go around. They now list me as a “regular contributor”, which I’m quite inordinately chuffed about. Pick up the PDF of #007 here. Another poem about Ophelia! Don’t say I don’t take on varied subjects. The print edition may appear in the Fall, but the last one still didn’t appear yet, so who knows? That’s all for now, mes poules. Good evening!

Agave Magazine Issue 1

Two new poems of mine grace the pages of Agave Magazine‘s first issue, which you can read as a PDF. The first is a conflagration of the Odilon Redon painting “Ophelia” and one of my favourite scenes from the John Cassavetes movie Love Streams. The second takes Gauguin’s 1890 painting “Nirvana” as its subject.
