I’m the author of the chapbooks COLD HOUSE (Espresso-Chapbooks, 2017), LEAST (2012), THE PLESYRE BARGE (2010), FAMILY PORTRAIT WITH TWO DOGS BLEEDING (2009), SITTING GETTING UP SITTING AGAIN (2000), and ENOUGH SALT (1998). My various writings have appeared in many publications both print and online. For nine years, I edited the international literary review WORLD LETTER (1990-1998). I have an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Presently, I struggle, in a small town, in the Midwest. I teach online classes, work part-time as a laborer, seek permanent work, read and write poetry.
