Dead Letter Radio features “Imagine the Moon as Companion”

I’m truly honored today to hear another of my poems read by Taize Jones on Dead Letter Radio.  This time out, Taize employed his vocal talents to interpret “Imagine the Moon as Companion” on Episode 41 of the program.  You can find it right here — my piece begins right at the seven-minute mark.

You can also find the episode on SpotifyApple Podcasts and Listen Notes.

Dead Letter Radio remains a unique online venue for writers and listeners — its tone and atmosphere are less like those of a podcast and more like sitting down, relaxing and reading aloud with a few good friends.  For me, it’s one of the best things on the net.

I’m so happy to share here that Spillwords Press today published my poem, “An Ode to the Paintings of a Newly Discovered Artist.”  You can find it right here.

As always, thanks to Dagmara K. and the rest of the folks at Spillwords Press for allowing me to be a part of this terrific creative community!

“One crown is lacking, Prospero …”

One crown is lacking, Prospero,

My empire is my own;

Dying Alonso does not know

The diadem Antonio

Wears in his world alone.

— Antonio’s refrain, from W.H. Auden’s The Sea and the Mirror
