Longest Day of the Year

Happy first day of summer. This solstice is for you.

An Interview for the Poetry Society of America

The Poetry Society of America kindly asked me some questions. Then I kindly evaded most of them. You may read the interview here if you feel so inclined.

I have a new poem up today in the Harvard Review. It's called, Overjoyed and appears in my new book Sharks in the Rivers coming out from Milkweed in October.

It's a true story from my hometown, the waxwings get drunk off the berries and throw themselves onto the road. We used to watch them from the park across the street. You can still see them by the archway on Lovall Valley Road, plunging themselves into a frantic happiness.
