On Thursday, May 19 at the Poet’s Follies Reading (Ewald Branch, Grosse Pointe Library, 6:30pm) I will be reading from two new manuscripts, one a collection of lyric/narrative poems momentarily entitled Lament, Machine, the other a manuscript of experimental poems, entitled Severance. I hate the term ‘experimental,’ by the way. All poems are experimental.

Severance, however, is an entirely new branch of work for me. I’m terrified and enthralled to unveil these poems. I hope you can be there.
