About Hanami


Poems 1992 - 2007

Aldrich Press, 2015 (forthcoming)

Hanami is my first full-length collection and contains poems from the earliest part of my career through my time in Japan on the JET Program and my settling in Massachusetts and meeting my wife and pretty much everything in between. These are the poems of my years wandering from place to place, the explorations of the unsettled man.
