A blog about poetry, teaching, crime fiction (maybe), a certain amount of politics, guitar gear and other stuff.
These are pretty funny.
Not sure where these come from or why they were done, but for whatever reason "Deer Hit" has become a poem that a lot of high school teachers find "teachable" and "relevant." I thought both of these videos were pretty great/funny/inventive.
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.
