I'm thrilled to announce the release of Dovetail: Poems in Conversation and a Conversation, a chapbook I co-authored with Kimiko Hahn and published by Slapering Hol Press.
Dovetail is a sequence of poems germinated from words Kimiko and I traded back and forth -- words from our childhood, words with meanings that echo and resound across decades and cultures: between the U.S. and Japan, across childhood and adulthood, between writer and reader.
And more than anything, it’s a chapbook driven by a playful spirit of experimentation and collaboration. As I say in the “Conversation” at the end of the book, it was a “practice in letting go of control, a way to stay curious and open, and a way to surprise myself.”
It’s available for order here. Check it out, let me know what you think, and tell me how you approach collaborations!
Happy National Poetry month!
While April brings snow storms and chilly, sunny days, I'm gearing up for two poetry readings later this month with some of my fellow Kundiman poets. (#actualasianpoets) Check it out:
