I’ll be the featured guest on this Sunday’s Poet as Radio show on KUSF in Exile. I’ll be discussing huminsect (dancing girl press), prism maps (dusie kollektiv), and the Poetry Center Chapbook Exchange, and will likely read new work from auto/bio. Tune in at 11:30am-12:30pm PT at savekusf.org – SF Community Radio.
My poem “little stem” is up at Finery, and will be one of seven postcard poems featured (in an extended version) in my upcoming Dusie Kollektiv chapbook: Prism Maps. “little stem” began as a postcard poem in conversation with the image above, and was mailed to a poet in the group. “A poet in the group” sounds ominous – alas, postcards are not cannibals; they’re a great catalyst for building momentum when you think you’ve no time for writing poems. (Catalysts, not cannibals.)
I have a soft place in the heartstrings for postcards and handwritten correspondence. So much can be said in the postcard space by diverse measures – dashed off fervently while waiting in line for groceries, exactingly laid down to enhance the postcard form, or scrawled to cover every inch of the text space. Postcards are a pithy and resonant form for the force, y’all.
