Poem up at Mudlark

My poem, Eating the Seed Corn, is up on Mudlark, an electronic journal that has been publishing poems on-line since 1995, and was an early exemplar for internet poetry. I’m delighted to be on Bill Slaughter’s site again, a decade after he published  The Conversion of Saint Jon, my poem series about my friend, Jon Greenberg, who died of complications of HIV in 1993. It’s really a thrill to see these two poems featured on this site; Eating the Seed Corn felt like a sequel to the Jon poems. It is also in tribute to Ben Lerner‘s book,Mean Free Path, published in 2010, which I totally fell in love with, so much so that I consciously tried to capture his style in my work. Seed Corn is a very long poem, a memoir, and dear to my soul. I hope you will read it.

working again

Reporting that once again, I have part-time (per diem) work with Planned Parenthood. They formally rehired me today, and have already offered me 2 days of paid training this week and 9 additional clinic days this month. I will also be working in a private practice one day a week doing pain management, which should also begin sometime this month. This means I will probably be working 3-4 days/week and be able to pay my bills. This is a good compromise with my urgent desire to continue to focus on my writing. I feel very grateful at the moment, I had a lovely summer getting unemployment checks and spending only a small amount of my savings, and now I have work again, just as things were starting to look a little dicey.
