I've been so busy traveling and visiting this past week I haven't had time to mention my very good news that I'll have another chapbook out next year, "Homebodies," from Hyacinth Girl Press. This is a collection of 'home totem' poems about household objects, and other poems set 'at home' or dealing with the concept of home. It includes some wine poems, "Whisk," "sPonge," "Faucet Song," and "Dollhouse," which appeared in Escape Into Life.
I was thrilled to have this chapbook accepted. Physical things are my favorite writing subjects, i.e. forks, knives, spoons and kneecaps.
There is a sink that won’t be filled
that won’t offer water
Rooms without doors
Children on their backs in bed
There are chairs tucked up to the table
docile where sedation reigns
Little house, in death the snow
will cover you like a doily
Wolves will circle your horses
frozen beside the sleigh
