I am pleased to have several poems in this anthology:
Devouring the Green: Fear of a Human Planet
Jaded Ibis Press, 2015. Edited by Sam Witt. “Organized around a series of questions drawing attention to how the 21st century has complicated our experiences of nature, the body, and human activity, Devouring the Green pushes an exciting range of contemporary poets to resist nostalgic, simplified notions of our human place in the world and, rather, to focus unflinchingly on the many ways we entangle with—and, by our presence, irrevocably change—the world around us. The poems gathered here are alternately visionary, wry, celebratory, angry, elegiac, and apocalyptic—dizzyingly broad in their scope and, above all else, timely. This is a wonderfully unique, ambitious, and challenging anthology.”
Some of you will already know that I have had a collection of my poems, Azimuth, published by Jaded Ibis Press. It comes in 2 editions, b/w and color... in the color edition, the art is done by artist Beatriz Albuquerque, and the book comes with 3D bookmark !
The other book is not a collection of poems, but rather poems and drawings done in collaboration with my friend (since college) Susana Amundaraín, a Venezuelan-born painter who is based in Philadelphia. She and I have been working on this book for a number of years... having a discussion through art and poetry. The book is Birdhouse Dialogues and is published by LaFi Publishers. It is also available on Amazon.
