HOW TO LOVE THE OUTLAW

At a panel on Polish poetry, with the poet and artist Grzegorz Wroblewski, one of the audience members, clearly annoyed, said he was sick of the idea of the artist as outsider. The theme of alienation in art. I replied that yes some artists and writers in history are also

LYRIKLINE

Happy to have my nomadic poetics with Lyrikline from various collections, including Rides (Blart Books) and Smashing Time (miPoesias). Translated into Polish and Danish.

EILEEN MYLES AND GETTING PAID

"Žibutė" / 9 / Eileen Myles in Vilnius

POETRY RECEIPT SCROLL FROM BRITISH MUSEUM

Erkembode (DAVID KELLY-MANCAUX) has created a saintly scroll of my poems (a minimalist version of Kerouac’s On the Road).
