Poets for Living Waters

There’s a big new batch of poems up today at Poets for Living Waters, a project spearheaded by Amy King and Heidi Lynn Staples.

There’s an excerpt there from my new and forthcoming book, Cutting Time with a Knife.  Also check out work from Leora Fridman, Scott Abels, Brian Spears, Caitlin Thompson, Lara Candland, Kazim Ali, Rickey Laurentiis, and Michael Lee Rattigan.

Poets for Living Waters is a poetry action in response to the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico begun on April 20, 2010, one of the most profound human-made ecological catastrophes in history.

The first law of ecology states that everything is connected to everything else. An appreciation of this systemic connectivity suggests a wide range of poetry will offer a meaningful response to the current crisis, including work that harkens back to Hurricane Katrina and the ongoing regional effects.

Please submit 1-3 poems, a short bio, and credits for any previously published submissions to:
