After laying low and gathering my psychic/poetic forces over the holy daze, a few things have lately come to light …
My essay on the theme of War & Silence was published online at Poetry-Quebec, edited by Endre Farkas, Carolyn Souaid and Elias Letelier. They were also kind enough to publish one of my poems, ‘Escape Velocity’.
I’m also reading a few pieces tomorrow, drawn from a whole pile of texts I’ve recently selected as part of a cunning plan for a recording project.
