"DEMAND NEVER ABATES FOR VICE"
"Witnessed in a Convex Mirror: Vice" -- one of hoped-for 300 poems that I will have riffed from John Ashbery's "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror" -- is now up at Indolent Books' ROUGH BEAST Feature. You can see the poem (which touches on my tobacco-farming roots and an ill-conceived drug war) HERE.
More poems from the series will appear for the next five Thursdays. My thanks to curator Michael Broder.
