Spider with Wings

This chapbook began with the idea of writing a series of short poems. No punctuation. Some capital letters. A collage of life experiences (mine and others), observations, dreams, and more. The book is full of dense imagery and the voice of a siren. Chew on these poems in small, slow bites.

First lines from “28 years” first published by East Jasmine Review: birds evolve from dinosaurs/ discover monastic hermits retreat/ to crannog/ solstice flight spirit pole/ you are not supposed to be here

This is my first solo book. I am thankful to Jamii Publishing. They designed the wonderful cover and a creative layout inside the book.

Jamii Publishing are about community. I will participate in the event “The Second Poetry/ Circus – A Shakespearean Carnival” produced by Nicelle Davis on September 19 at LA Griffith Park’s Merry-Go-Round. Twenty poets will read in this free event for all ages. I will read from “Spider with Wings” in the 5:30-6:30pm group.

It was exciting to have the books delivered to my doorstep. Nikia Chaney, one of the editors, made the delivery. She is a great friend, collaborator, and wonderful poet. You can order a signed copy at my website: http://www.fiberverse.com. The book is also available at http://www.Amazon.com (where you can read my author page).
