I'm delighted to share that Berfrois, one of the most intelligent spaces online, is featuring two of my poems, including "The Song of Space" which may be my favorite poem from "The Ashbery Riff-Offs" series.  As well, Berfrois is presenting "Tense Past Tense," a tanka excavated viz sous rature from another Ashbery Riff-Off poem. You can see both poems HERE.

I love "The Song of Space" as I love considering space and its significance. Interestingly, Berfrois illustrated the poem with Hallgrímskirkja, a cathedral in Reykjavik. Glad they "got" it. For interest the original cathedral that inspired the poem is Trinity Church in Manhattan. But the bigger the cathedral, the more apt for this poem. Here they both are, just for a fun:
