  • Currently, I have been working on many new poems that will hopefully begin to shape themselves into something like a coherent collection. One of these poems is a crown of sonnets dedicated to Mae West in which her famous one-liners become anagrams that are the basis for every word selected in the poems, shaping each sonnet’s movement through the playful inversion of her own humor. As of this writing, 12 sonnets have currently been accepted for publication and are forthcoming in 2012. Literary Arts, in progress 01/2011.
