Why?

Who am I?

I am a poet, unaffiliated with any university (i.e., I have a day job). I live in Los Angeles. I’ve published two books. Details are available on my main site.

Who are you?

Probably someone who typed in a poetry-related search term, or someone who stumbled upon my main site and followed the “blog” link. (Please note—I generally do not respond to queries from students writing research papers).

Why are we here?

Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.
