Perpetuation of the Species: Poets Respond

Rattle has a weekly feature in which a poet writes about a current event. This week the Poets Respond poem is my brand spanking new poem about the refugee crisis.

It's nerve-wracking to write a poem on Friday and submit it 15 minutes before the midnight deadline, and then have it appear on Sunday. But I do hope you read the poem, and perhaps respond yourself to Poets Respond.

Thanks to Tim Green and Rattle for giving my newest poem a home. It's heart-breaking that the refugees aren't able to get a new home so readily.

New Review: Mendeleev's Mandala

"We know from the first few lines, from the poet’s first remarkable observations, that this is not your grandad’s book of verse." Wow! Thanks to Arthur McMaster at Poets' Quarterly for this beautiful and thoughtful review of Mendeleev's Mandala.
