Chapbook: Earth Meeting Sky

I haven’t put out a chapbook in a long time, but it looks like tomorrow will be the night! Earth Meeting Sky will be on sale tomorrow night (assuming Kinko’s/Staples/wherever doesn’t screw up), although I don’t yet know the price of the book. It’s got an awesome set-list in it of old standbys and a few of my new favorites, and a couple of rockin’ photos by (I said you gave permission, sweetie, is that ok?).

There are six or seven of my Fire Circle chant-texts in the book, and nine poems:

  • Kitchen Samurai
  • Bacchus & the Pirates
  • Sonnet on the Madonna
  • Second Baptism (completely revised!)
  • Death in D.C.
  • Lament for those lost to Ocean (part of the Orien cycle)
  • The Heron
  • The Knitting Lesson
  • Locally Grown (completely revised for this edition!)

    None of them has ever appeared on the printed page before that I can recall, and I happen to think it’s all very solid work. I also plan on trying to put together a chapbook of one year of the moon sonnet cycle, and I think that has the potential to be a huge hit, but I’m not sure I can finish it by tomorrow. It’s a big project; I wish I had some piece of software or some such that would help with the layout. Argh.

    So come see my feature at Reflections Café tomorrow, come buy the new book (I hope!) and share some of your own poetry about myths and myth-making during the open mic.

    ALSO, if you haven’t ever shown your face at FLOOD STAGE, the poetry reading on 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month at Victoria Station Café in Putnam, CT, come on down! The reading starts at 7:30-ish, and usually finishes between 9:00 and 9:30.
