A Violent Streak

These poems travel along a ragged b-line from the banks of the frozen Yukon River to the sun-blasted hinterlands of Barcelona, and all the way to the "cat's cradle' of the ring-roads in Beijing.

In A Violent Streak, anxiety, ritual, the inertia of family trauma, expatriation and sexual politics collide, testing the virtue of flight, haste and distraction.

The Half-Life of Oracles

The poems in The Half-Life of Oracles speaks from a way-station between mortals and immortals, a place where the strangeness of daily life meets the intimacy of distant ages.

These are poems in which the living and the dead play endless games of musical chairs, emperors and philosophers wage war against rivers, and dusty incantations for achieving immortality are reborn as pick-up lines.
