Failed Existentialist in a Field of Fireflies

Here is the title of one of my poems from The Seed Thieves, taped to the garage door of the German sculptor, Matthias Kunisch. Kunisch painstakingly carved this title and the first several lines of my poem into his custom-made beer garden table last summer, to display at the home of Klaus and Kathrin Entenmann, friends who invited me–and graciously paid my way–to Germany to read at the opening for the art show, Heimat.
