i sent some photographs to the good people over at yale press earlier this week. just found out the book designers loved the photographs. yeah! so i might have a vivid photograph on the cover!
the latest installment of diode is up and running. sigh. if only they would take one of my poems.
funny: i always thought my first book would have a painting on the cover. but the minute i saw these photographs online, i knew they would make a great cover.
the new york times briefly reviews michael dickman, c. dale young, chris martin and ross gay.
ophiophobia: an ophidiophobic would not only fear them when in live contact but also dreads to think about them or even see them on TV or in pictures.

The snake photos are weird and strange and wonderful but creepy.

It seems strange to think of them on the cover of your book.

So glad NY Times did Torn! Yet, I have to complain: no chick poets on the list. So sad.
