My new book of prose poetry, Flares, is out now!


The richly imagined fables, vignettes, and prose poems of Flares reveal the elementary strangeness of this world. Here is the improvised travel record of a poet haunted by history, who documents what he discovers in foreign lands with an exacting and hallucinatory eye. Composed in transit, on diplomatic missions to scores of countries, Flares will endure in the reader's imagination as a series of signals in the night, illuminating the hidden corners of our time here on earth. Published by White Pine Press.
