mirror of all things

It remains to be seen whether I shall begin publishing again in earnest. Nonetheless, the featured poet in the current issue of SCR is yrs truly. This means an interview, a gaggle of poems, and a review of my book. I enjoyed doing the interview, thanks to Rose Kelleher, aka The Rude Interviewer, who tends to keep things fresh, and a little off kilter. And except for occasional bits here and there, this is the first review of my book to see print.
The review of "Nevertheless" is here:

In recent weeks I've been immersed in, and overwhelmed by, the sacred stones at Zion, the madding crowds in Vegas, and the hearts and minds of children behind prison bars. Words have failed me. Images have not.
