My new poetry collection–Worn Cities–will be coming out this fall. If you place your order during the pre-publishing period (up to July 25), shipping is only $2.99 for the first copy and $1.99 for each additional copy. If you’ve already ordered Worn Cities, my sincere thanks.
The cover art is my own photo from early 1980 of the Munjoy Hill area in Portland, Maine. In spite of intense gentrification, today Bruni’s Market still stands. Here are a few lines from the title poem in the collection:
In the sun-salted air of DiMillo’s on the waterfront,
I chatter and carry on about poetry
with Cheryl, Siobhan and Carol.
Lobster-roll juices dribble down my chin,
stain my aqua-blue, designer print blouse.
It doesn’t matter. I am happy
in my city by the sea.
