Breaking news: a fragment from Tractate Pseudonymity

One of my poems appears in the new issue of Hospital Drive

I'm delighted to be able to say that I have a poem in the Winter/Spring 2012 issue of Hospital Drive: A Journal of Reflective Practice in Word & Image.

Hospital Drive, launched in Fall 2006, encourages original creative work that examines themes of health, illness, and healing.

Hospital Drive is the name of an actual road at the University of Virginia. Set between Thomas Jefferson’s original academic village and the earliest buildings of the School of Medicine, it brings visitors into a community of scholars, teachers, healers, artists, and the people they serve.

If you go to the Hospital Drive website and click on the photograph of the serpentine wall in snow, you'll be taken to issue 7, the winter/spring 2012 issue. My poem is called Change, and it's one of the mother poems in my as-yet-unpublished next collection.

I'm slowly reading my way through the issue now, and I'm really impressed -- this is powerful, thoughtful, unsentimental writing about sickness, healing, and health. What great company to be in. Go, read, enjoy!
