I’m one of the 2 featured readers for our ecopoetry evening at Poets Corner, this Wednesday 19th May @7:30pm. I’ll be screening some new ecopoetry films with original musical scores by Hazel Fairbairn, including “Tardigrade.” [Check out an excerpt from “Tardigrade” on the One Minute Poem feature on Poets Corner’s YouTube channel!].
Our other featured reader will be Adam Dickinson, whose latest book, Anatomic (Coach House Books, 2018) concerns the results of chemical and microbial testing on his body and won the Alanna Bondar Memorial Book Prize from the Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada.

“Black Mud” + “Tardigrade”
August 1, 2020 § Leave a comment
Two poems of mine have just appeared in Otoliths, Issue 58, Southern Winter 2020 edition. My thanks to Mark Young for publishing another seed, “Tardigrade,” from a sequence on resilience and ecological destruction, as well as the long version of “Black Mud.” I cut down a much shorter version of this poem to serve as words for an Art Song, with music composed by Yi-Ning Lo, for Art Song Lab 2020. Its performance can be screened here.
