« Hump Day Highlights by Stacey Harwood | Main | Titian -- a limerick from London »

October 03, 2013


One of my earliest collaborations: I had a poem accepted by the magazine "Sojourners." The wonderful poetry editor chose artwork to go with the poem, artwork which I thought made the experience of the poem even richer.

I'd like to do more with all sorts of collaboration and all the ways technology makes all sorts of things possible. I am always happy to have my poems find their way along all sorts of paths in the world. It's not like I'm making lots of royalty money, and so having a poem appear in a different format would work against my royalties. If I can find ways to connect with all sorts of readers, that would make me happy. Working in different types of media would also make me happy, as would working with all sorts of artists.

That said, I haven't collaborated as much as I might have when I was younger and knew a wider variety of artists.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
