“What does it mean?” Context is a landscape for understanding. Music often triggers memories of place and time. Collage forces contradictions to confront each other. Dice and loop put things together to make something new.

e.g., my poems on 1977 Mix Tape are provided context and additional meaning  by collaborator James Nugent. Listen or download for free at SoundCloud or Bandcamp.

WHEN I CANNOT DISCERN

no arc nor halo

no narrative defined

no longer pink

there is only one way

this can end—

next time you ask

I’ll say “Yes”

from 1977, forthcoming from Ravenna Press
