Worn Cities–My New Poetry Collection

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.

Azure_Alice_CovThe 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.
