Delighted to have two poems, If I know and The Glass, in Issue 44 of Northwords Now this month.
The Glass also appears in my new collection, Across Your Careful Garden. Did I mention I had a new collection????
Those subversive types at New Boots and Pantisocracies just couldn’t let Recent Events go by unremarked, and among their garland of anti-Odes is one of mine, on The Crown.
Two of my poems, Too Few to Mention and Seal, are up now at the fabulous Leopard Arts.
Very happy to see a poem of mine, The necklace, is up today at Ink Sweat & Tears
Fair delichtit tae hae a poem, Nicht Waukin, i Issue Twa o Eemis Stane, a grand new journal i the Scots Leid.
And I am delighted to have a poem, Mirror sonnet: the loft ladder, in the beautiful Winter 2023 issue of Gyroscope Review.
It’s great to be back in Toasted Cheese again – I have two poems, Cycle and Daughter, in Issue 22(4) this month.
Not that anybody’s glad to see the back of him or anything, but New Boots and Pantisocracies are organising a for the departing PM, and I have contributed a sonnet, no less – Upon Westminster.
So one of the rare good things in lockdown was that I finally got to fulfil an ambition by taking part in a performance of John Cage’s “4:33”. It was organised online by Red Note Ensemble, with guests, and I was not-playing the treble recorder. And the poem I wrote about the experience is in the Spring 2022 edition of Gyroscope Review.
(John Cage’s score in proportional notation, which I used in the performance, can be seen online at https://hyperallergic.com/85779/the-original-john-cage-433-in-proportional-notation-19521953/)
My poem Luciferins is up today at Ink Sweat & Tears – really good to be back there, it’s a lovely place.
