I've gone and done Likewise*

(*)

Last week The Likewise Folio, a pretty rad online poetry rag, ran two of my poems: "{ }" and "Rua: An Elegy in Holes." Both appear in my forthcoming book, so consider this another tease. And, bonus: you can listen to me read "{ }" via the embedded player at the end of this post. Frabjous day, right?

Two things about "{ }": 1) It's an unrhymed sonnet (I don't do rhymed verse very often—not sure why). 2) It was inspired by this video on mapmaker Jerry Gretzinger.
