A Movie Starring Me


Filmmaker Willy Bearden (see his and David Tankersley’s movie “One Came Home”–it’s quite beautiful) filmed my recent reading. My publisher suggested filming it and I was thinking, of course, of a digital or phone-made movie. Or perhaps a cartoon. Willy was kind enough to do it up right. I think I look ok, not too antiquated and only slightly palsied. But, you work with what you got.
For all who didn’t come to the reading and wanted to, and for those who came and just can’t get enough of me:

Oh, and doesn’t Chloe look beautiful?


A good week



Never let it be said that I don’t appreciate when things are good.

Last week I gave a well-received reading from my newest poetry collection, The Catastrophe of my Personality. (The Blue Hour Press, $15). Heartfelt thanks to all who attended. Here:

Then on Monday I received word that Redneck Press ( will release my poetry chapbook, The Medicament Predicament in September.

Finally today I received an acceptance from  MadHat Press
( will publish my latest collection of short stories,
As a Child: Stories, in 2015.

That was a good writing week. I love you all.
