poems published in Drunken Boat
Drunken Boat just published two poems I penned for kicks while biking the Silk Road. You can find "Searching for Life in the Universe" and "Night Song" online here. In addition, my essay "The Contours of Cold" – first published in CutBank – was reprinted in the issue's Exploration folio.
"Please don’t mention to anyone that Herman has taken up writing poetry. You know how these things spread." -Elizabeth Melville, Herman's wife, in a letter to her mother
