three recent poems

June 16, 2012

here are three pretty recent poems, I Drink Bronze Light at the PEN Poetry Series, Poem for Japan at the Academy of American Poets and Aubergine at the Los Angeles Review of Books. I wrote “Aubergine” trying to respond to the set of questions the LARB sent along for us to answer instead of a traditional bio, but I only answered the first one, “How do you wake up in the morning?” I guess maybe in some ways all poems are an answer to that question.
