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.

Burningword Issue 67

I have three poems in the latest issue of Burningword. The first is based on a Sérusier still-life, the second on a painting of a rabbi by Marc Chagall. The third is my translation of a Rimbaud sonnet about Ophelia. You can pick up a digital or physical copy here.
