First Blog Ever

Having a blog (created by someone else, or I wouldn't have it) is a new experience for a Technology Troglodyte like me. For my first entry, let me encourage you to order my new book!  You've already seen the gorgeous cover, and on the back there are some amazing blurbs by Rhina P. Espaillat, Molly Peacock, and Lews Turco.  Between the covers are some 70 poems, gathered from my last 10 years of published work.  (And really, what else are you going to do with $18.00 -- that won't even take 2 people to the movies anymore).
