Sheet Music, my chapbook of six poems is being published by Three Bee Press in early 2016. The Editor, Greg Wahl, has been busy with paper selection and layout, and lately has been spending time at Signal Return in Easter Market, Detroit, setting the text and printing the first three pages (pictured.) When all the pages are printed, the book will be bound with hand-stitching.
The poems included are the first six of a larger manuscript, entitled Severance, which concerns the escape of two marionettes from the stage.The chapbook also features drawings by the author inspired by the poems.
