Installing updates... 1 out of, well, several

For one reason and another I've neglected the blog lately. But October's been a productive month for me-- starting with the OPA conference in the first weekend, I've written quite a bit, been to a couple of readings, visited a writing group, and joined a weekly critique group.

It's good to be back in the saddle.

Rather than dump all the poems I've written in the last month onto the blog at once, I'm going to post one at a time, for a while, and not necessarily in the order they were written.

The Progression from Late Iron to Nuclear Age

Anvil, bang! cues dormant engines. Forges glow hot,
incandesce, jump-starting kiln’s labor.
Molecules, nuclei, orbiting particles quicken—
Red. Scarlet. Tungsten ultra-violet wild X-ray!
