I’m thrilled to have a few poems from my manuscript, self-driving, included in the March issue of The Brooklyn Rail. Thanks so much to Anselm Berrigan, fearless Rail poetry editor.
February 3 from 6-8 pm at 9 W. 8th Street in NYC I’m reading with CAConrad, Matvei Yankelevich, Morgan Vo, Karen Weiser, Farnoosh Fathi, Shiv Kotecha and Anselm Berrigan in association with Artfare-New York‘s inaugural exhibition.
A lot of what I wrote is in response to Dustin Yellin‘s work. The 2-D images in no way capture the objects’ intricacy and magic. It was a joy to interact with them in person, I even got a lot of the language I used from the back of the cutouts in his pieces.

This Library Journal thing happened, which is very cool. We’ve been named Movers & Shakers for 2012. They shouted out Mandy, Michael & I but obviously, the library is the glorious manifestation of the hard work of everyone who’s helped build The People’s Library and kept it going through the winter. Mad props to everybody who ever helped out. And thank you, Library Journal for noticing.
Also, it’s National Poetry Month. I’ve got a few poems out in this month’s Brooklyn Rail.
