EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss
I am pleased to be taking part in EXTRACTION: Art on the Edge of the Abyss, a global project of the arts to transform public awareness and shift from exploitive to respectful compassionate ways of living.
See the EXTRACTION website for details and participants list.
My first work for the Extraction project is the completion of my manuscript of climate poems, In the Cities of Sleep. The manuscript includes my two long poems,"Report," previously published as a chapbook by dPress, and "Last Report," both of which document by date, the tides, wind, temperature (and implicit weather events) against a backdrop of celestial cycles and fragments of daily news. Other poems in the book include "Cell Songs," "In the Cities of Sleep," "Safe Harbor" and lastly "The Backward Map" a Coyote story for the crises of our time.
Expect occasional updates on the progress of my contribution as time goes on.
