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 a freshly-completed manuscript, In the Cities of Sleep. The manuscript contains my two long poems,"Report," previously published as a chapbook by dPress, and the current "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," "Lit Window" and others.
Expect occasional updates on the progress of my contribution as time goes on.
