Northwest Local
Author Fair

Come visit me and other authors from Beaverton and surrounding communities on Saturday, May 25 at the Northwest Local Author Fair in Beaverton. I will sell and sign books from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Beaverton City Library, 12375 SW 5th Street.

I will have a few copies of the What Color is Your Privilege? limited edition (available only at my appearances and to newsletter subscribers). What Color is Your Privilege?, my fifth poetry collection, opens a window on the suffering many are privileged to ignore.

In addition, I will have color prints of my microchap 'zine Summer Creek from the Origami Poems Project. Summer Creek includes six of my poems inspired by Summer Creek (that runs through Beaverton and Tigard, Oregon). Pawtographed copies of Editor Kitty's microchap Cat Haiku 'zine will also be available.

The library is across the street from the Beaverton Farmers Market (open at 8 a.m.) so come early to grab breakfast and fresh produce first.

Listen to "Dimensions" on The Overcast, narrated by J.S. Arquin.

Lost in another dimension, one of her own creation, Lora struggles to survive until her wife finds a way to repair the door that separates them.

You can also purchase "Dimensions" in ebook and print (together with The Lover and The Patient and Queer Notion in The Lover and the Patient: Three Stories)".

Zingara Poetry Review, a space for practicing poets, published my shadorma Protection on May 1, 2019. Shadorma is a Spanish form I learned about a few years ago. Like tanka and haiku, I find it works particularly well for poems related to nature. Protection is the fourth shadorma I have had published.

Cat Haiku
The Origami Poems Project, publisher of Summer Creek, issued six of Editor Kitty's haiku as a microchap 'zine, with cover art by Lauri Burke.

You can download Cat Haiku, print it, and follow the instructions to fold it for your own personal copy.
