I have a video poem up at The Continental Review!

Man, there is some good stuff on that website.

Thank you, Jordan Stempleman.

[I recently finished reading Stempleman's No, Not Today, just out with Magic Helicopter Press.  Fantastic.]

I just stumbled

upon this quotation about Walt Whitman:

"Galway Kinnell has remarked that Whitman's poems are so rich in vowel music it is as if they were written in Hawaiian."

[This comes from Robert Hass' introduction to Song of Myself and other poems (Counterpoint, 2010).  I haven't yet found the original Kinnell quotation.]
