Thank you for your nice comment MK.

I'm excited to say that I'll have a second chapbook coming out sometime this summer/fall also on Peptic Robot Press. This will be a collaborative effort btwn myself and the artist/publisher, Joseph Lappie. It will have newer/newish poems by me and all new work from Joseph. And I'm sure we'll have it at City Lights Bookstore.
