Recent Poems & Commentary

I want to post some poems here more recent than in my books, and to change them periodically. Most literary magazines won’t accept work that has been previously published, including on the Internet, so I can’t post work that is being sent out, and they don’t want work posted that they’ve published in the last year; these poems avoid both those problems. I also thought of adding some commentary, a few words about the origin or process of writing the poem and a note on the form, which may be of interest to some readers.
