Design for Lunar Chandelier Press

The great Lunar Chandelier Press has me designing a book of poems by the talented Vincent Katz, called Southness. Keep your eyes peeled for a release party.


I'm also finishing up the design for A Picture of Everyone I Love Passes Through Me, a book of collages by Lynn Behrendt with text mixed by John Bloomberg-Rissman, remixed by Lynn Behrendt. 


What a lovely collaboration to behold! 

With a feeling of a 21st century imagist soul, Vincent Katz reminds us that poetry can be used for many things: observation, personal declaration, and joy.

Quadro Tonto (by VK)

I’d like to be a better person

I know that in their eyes I’m fine

that everything has been left in order

but in my own I fail at interval

I’m not enough there for people

I evanesce or my own desire’s paramount

but I also know it is within my power

to be a better person

I need only look into their eyes

instead of longingly down streetlights

of the limb-strewn boulevard


Volkswagen recommends that you point your key fob at your chin, making your head a kind of organic radio transmitter, in order to boost the signal to unlock your car.

You have a spore in your brain: it moves. Pan holds back his cry; instead of “A Day in the Life of a Naropa University Writing Professor” — it is now: “A Day in the Life of a Monster.” Prepare for journeys to the ER; know that your guides will be Miss Piggy and meth and shadows. Highlights: a plate of foaming innards. A life-size silver stencil of Durga sitting on her lion on the side of a boxcar. And, if we dare, the sail will fill and the boat we are in begin to tilt and move.

We are all Palestinians now.
