Mine is this week's featured poem over at Linebreak. Audio recording by Rose Hunter. What a great site they've got over there. I've only recently discovered it and have been digging the archive ever since.

I'm a February interview over at Bookslut. I talk with the wonderfully adept Elizabeth Hildreth about such issues as "the colostomy bag of sorrows," the sadness of sour car alarms, Robert Bly, animal instinct, etc., all while trying to get to the bottom of my second book, "Minimum Heroic." You can check it out here.
