Hi all. While work continues on the Only Gaijin in the Village book I come bearing good news. I recently had a long poem, “Kobe Waterfront” included in Tokyo Poetry Journal vol. 7. It’s the first poem I’ve written in years, and was inspired by a photographic exhibition about the 1995 Kobe earthquake. Copies can be ordered from the website.
Enough procrastination! Back to the manuscript and high pollen count. Ugh, spring.
