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.

Circa Issue 9

Circa just put out their summer issue, containing three of my poems: shazam. The first is a translation of Rimbaud’s “Le Dormeur du val”, the second a piece I wrote after watching John Cassavetes’ The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, and the third a little sketch of our old French-Canadian landlord. More to come in the next couple of days!
