GRAVEL June 2015

Hello all! It’s summer today, and here‘s a summer evening poem written some years ago when I was waiting to come to America. Kathleen my lovely wife donated one of her photographs to the effort. Incidentally, you can find more of her work, and even procure her services for weddings, family shoots and more at parenthesisphotography.com. Isn’t that cool. More coming in the next day or so. Buenas tardes!

Lost in Thought Issue 5

When Robert Vaughan at Lost in Thought got in contact with my earlier this year and asked me to write something for the new issue, I’d already had my greedy eyes on the magazine for some time. Simply put, it’s one of the most beautifully designed and thoughtfully curated American literary magazines I’ve come across, a fact that is all the more remarkable given that its staff is comprised of just two guys. Anyway, their approach is quite novel: they research artwork for the upcoming issue, and then send images to writers whom they feel the images would suit. Once they have all the writing and artwork they experiment with visuals and text in some fresh, charming ways. The poem I wrote for them is a recent favourite, about a Metro-North conductor. Pick up the issue in print or digital versions here.
