2 new poems in The Fiddlehead

The Fiddlehead 268

I’ve got two new poems in the summer issue of The Fiddlehead, called “P-town sonnet” & “An update on the search for gravitational waves.”

“P-town” refers, of course, to that paradise called Provincetown, MA, at the tip of the Cape, where I went last year for a week-long workshop with one of my favourite living poets, Nick Flynn. I was so out of my element & had so many epiphanies there! From the poem: “Everyone wants the photograph without/the world in it.”

“An update on the search for gravitational waves” is a long-ish poem about ripple effects on your life from the past… the blood & leaving/blood & leaving.

On another note: one of the things I hope I never get over is when you get your copy of a mag with your poem, & you see so many people you know and admire in there, too. In this issue are a bunch of fellow poets I am proud to call my pals, including Michael Prior, Cassidy McFadzean, Shane Neilson, Dani Couture, Dina Del Bucchia, & Ben Ladouceur.
