This is the year that is

… and it’s not over yet. But here is an update from my poetry desk:

I have poems in

  • Distāntia — an homage to Philly bookstores with terrible pre-recorded singing
  • e.ratio — travel poems (written pre-pandemic) from Italy and Belgium
  • The Gay & Lesbian Review — flowers with a side of Wordsworth and H.D.
  • Lavender Review — a dream-vision
  • Mezzo Cammin — nature, climate change, pandemic, birds
  • peculiar — now that billionaires are actually going into space, this one feels weirdly prescient

and translations in

Some English-language poetry collections I have especially enjoyed during the pandemic include

  • Tacey M. Atsitty, Rain Scald (University of New Mexico Press)
  • Molly McCully Brown, The Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded (Persea Books)
  • Molly McCully Brown and Susannah Nevison, In the Field Between Us (Persea Books)
  • Kimberly Johnson, Leviathan with a Hook, Uncommon Prayer, and a metaphorical god (Persea Books)
  • AJ Odasso, The Sting of It (Tolsun Books)
  • Jennifer Perrine, Again (Airlie Press) and No Confession, No Mass (University of Nebraska Press)
  • Anne Shaw, Dido in Winter (Persea Books)
  • A. E. Stallings, Like (Farrar Straus Giroux)

Finally, I am still hard at work behind the scenes on Christine de Pizan …
