New poems under the Tarpaulin Sky

I'm working on a new manuscript called
Index of Placebo Effects, based on my father's
research on placebos.

Three poems from the new work
are posted here, at Tarpaulin Sky:

Review of Prose Poetry Field Guide in Bookslut

Check out Anya Groner's excellent review of
The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Prose Poetry
in the July 2010 edition of Bookslut, right here:

It's an honor to be in the company of so many
stellar poets. Our essays vary widely, but most are
more personal and creative than typical academic
writing on genre. Each essay includes samples
of the writer's prose poems. It's perfect for
classroom use, but also makes great reading for
practicing writers.
