Well, it seems I won this wonderful fellowship to the Vermont Studio Center, where I'll be spending the month of July doing nothing but writing. I'm incredibly happy about it. They even have a chef. Which means I don't have to cook, shop, or do dishes. For a month. I can just kind of walk around, look at birds, listen to the river. Heaven, Heaven, Heaven. Heavy.

Actually an old poem, but "The Flaying of Marsyas" is online at Painted Bride Quarterly Issue #81. The poem, a sestina, is based on the painting by Titian seen here. With a bit of Seamus Heaney and van Gogh thrown in for complicated measure.

My poem "Freezeout Creek" is now available in the 1st issue of Cirque, out of Alaska. Concerning a particularly creepy bit of history in the Hell's Canyon region of Oregon, this poem was written in Fishtrap's borrowed canyon on the Imnaha River. The online version of the magazine is also available here.
