Thank you Silver Birch Press for publishing my three-part poem “Prayer for Infrastructure”, inspired by Jewish texts and originally written to commingle with a song written by Ben Pagliaro as part of his Sacred Space broadcast. It’s a salute to everything (and everyone) that’s keeping us alive these days! Read it here.
Talk about fast turnaround – I wrote this poem yesterday morning, submitted it in the early afternoon – They accepted it, and published it last night. Thank you Silver Birch Press! Now let’s hear it for our UPS Guy! (And all the UPS people of every gender out there!) Read it here.
Watch the publication event for “The Tokyo-Van Nuys Express” which featured me reading poems from the book, along with a haiku/tanka sequence from Deborah P. Kolodji (live from Southern California and Marika Kitakubo (live from Tokyo, Japan), Brendan Constantine reading a selection of Richard Brautigan poems, Addie Lupert modeling a Japanese Yukata, and other video treats!
