My latest coffee-filter poem, dangling from my porch wind chime. By hand, I pen one of my own poems on the “pages” created by folding, creasing, snipping, and taping bunches of new white filters for coffee-makers. One poem, one line per “page.”

Here I am reading at the open mic sponsored by West of the Moon Writer’s Retreat in New Harmony, Indiana, on Wednesday, June 25th.

I bounced the Slinky (in my right hand) in tune with the rhythms of my poem.

This month I turn 55 years old. I have been a poet for 14 years. Do I look sufficiently Irish-American?

SIXFOLD ACCEPTANCE ! — voters have ranked my 5-poem manuscript The Valley of Queens high enough to be published in the Summer 2014 poetry issue.  In the third round of judging, my manuscript was ranked 22 of 31 entries (#1 being “best”).  The starting-gate total, 443 entries, gradually fell to 31 via voter lapses in following the rules, and via the website’s deferred deadline.

From the Sixfold website: “Sixfold is a completely writer-voted short story and poetry journal. Every writer who uploads a manuscript votes to choose the prize-winning manuscripts and all the short stories and poetry published in each issue. Everyone’s equally weighted vote selects what’s published, instead of one judge, or one or a few editors. With a fair, transparent, rule-based voting process, all writers find the best writing together.”
