A poem of mine has been accepted for Mind Your Own Business: Canadian Poetry and Prose of the White Collar World, an anthology edited by Bruce Meyer to be published this fall by Black Moss Press. Not that I've spent a lot of time in offices where white collar work is done -- just enough, it seems, to write a convincing poem about a certain cipher who does. It's called "Pantoum for a Hired Man". The pantoum, with all its reinforced recapitulation -- such a good form for evoking being stuck.
