The publisher of my upcoming story collection, Dog Horn Publishing, just started up a podcast called the Dogcast. It features spoken word, creative noise, interviews, and much more. My poem, “Spectral Inversion” is in podcast 02 at about the 6:40 mark. It’s free to listen, so please click through and have a look around!
Yeah, I write poetry, too. I only recently returned to the form after not producing more than a handful of poems in the last decade. It’s a welcomed return. It’s familiar territory, but after so many years away honing my craft with fiction, I feel like I return with a keener ear for the nuance of poetry, and with a stronger sense of imagery. I’ve still only produced a half-dozen or so new works, but I hope to collect the ever-growing pile at some point in the near future since they all border a common theme. The title of the volume will be named after the long-form poem I’ll write to wrap it all together. The title is tentatively: The Scalding Pool.
