Big Windows Review

Today, my poem, "Reboot: The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" appears online courtesy of The Big Windows Review! (It will also be included in their print edition in May.)

It's from a series of poems that plays around with the idea of rebooting: producing a distinctly new version (of an established media franchise, as a film, TV show, video game, or comic book), mainly through oulipian constrained writing techniques, based on TV Guide's self-rating of the "Top 50 TV shows of all time." Working texts were edited/manipulated/modified from public-facing summaries of the shows.

Long Time No Post: Updates and More

I don't think I need to make any excuses for the protracted radio silence over this last, rather 'unique' year. Nonetheless, first and foremost, if you're taking the time to read a post from Mr. Slowpoke, I hope you and yours are doing OK and hanging in there.

 Since I last weighed in, The Injured Parties released our second album, and I've had work appearing in Havik (a poem from my Lucio Fulci project), Round Table Literary Journal, and Neuro Logical (another Fulci poem). In addition, later this year will see the publication of my previously delayed, newest full-length collection, Frequently Asked Questions from Salmon, as well as a chapbook of ekphrastic poems from Finishing Line Press. Street dates along with book tour/readings TBA.

Be well!
