Collecting the Uncollected

I’ve added a new section to the site called “Uncollected.” It’s a place where I’ll be posting the occasional work from recent years which has not found its way into my four books. Included will be excerpts from a book-length sequence of poems based on Helen Frankenthaler’s paintings (and also on my grandmother Helen’s life) called–okay, you guessed it–“Helen.”

The piece I posted today is from a trip to Folly Beach near Charleston, South Carolina a few years ago.
