To begin ...

As the twentieth century fades out
the nineteenth begins
it is as if nothing happened
though those who lived it thought
that everything was happening
enough to name a world for & a time
to hold it in your hand
unlimited.......the last delusion
like the perfect mask of death

A Brief Note to My Correspondents

As sometimes happens in making electronic connections, I recently lost a year’s worth of email correspondence (from mid-2008 to the present), which I had been persistently storing in a constantly expanding inbox. My one apprehension is that this leaves me with a certain amount of interrupted communications & that a number of detailed & interesting attachments have also been lost in the process. I will try to catch up with this on my own, but if there are specific messages, requests, invitations, phone numbers, email addresses, or texts, manuscripts & attachments that any friends & readers want to get to me, you can reach me via email at

Otherwise Poems and Poetics will continue on schedule, as always.
