Dear Friends and Poetry Lovers,

I’m pleased to announce the impending release of my next book, The Connoisseur of Alleys (Marsh Hawk Press, 2016). The poems meld approaches found in constraint-based, computational, lyric, prose poem, abstract, story-telling, collage, transcolonial and indigenous (Kapwa-based) poems, among others. North American Review Editor Vince Gotera says about my 32nd poetry collection:

“A phrase from Comte de Lautréamont’s prose poem Les Chants de Maldoror (1869) has been used by many as a definition of surrealism: ‘the chance meeting on a dissecting-table of a sewing-machine and an umbrella.’ Such fanciful and bizarre juxtaposition is one of the many sources of beauty and the sublime in The Connoisseur of Alleys…. //  These poems are, to borrow from Whitman, ‘large and contain multitudes.’ They are a striking tribute to art and to poetry … emphasizing for ourselves our own humanity and grace.”

In gratitude, I’m offering a PRE-RELEASE SPECIAL involving a discounted price, free shipping ($4 value within the U.S.), and signed copies.  This SPECIAL expires Feb. 28, 2016. If interested, please send a $13.50 check (reflecting a 25% price discount) made out to me, as well as a shipping address, to
