A blog about poetry, teaching, crime fiction (maybe), a certain amount of politics, guitar gear and other stuff.
Oil prices falling
This is a good thing, making it a lot less likely (I hope) that we'll have an inflationary depression. Still a good chance of a deflationary depression, of course, but that won't be nearly as bad for us as loss of income AND hyper inflation.
I'm the author of the Frank Coffin mystery series, HIGH SEASON (2007), MATING SEASON (2009) and FIRE SEASON (2012) from St. Martin's/Minotaur. I've also published three books of poems VANITAS MOTEL (1998), THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE (2001), and The MANSION OF HAPPINESS (2016), all from Oberlin College Press. I'm currently at work on a comedic novel and a new book of poems. When I'm not writing I'm a college professor, a sort of okay guitar player, a guitar gear junkie, and a husband and father in progress.
