Gordon Hill Press will be publishing my next book in April. The Garden is comprised of a long-form poem, “The Garden in the Midst,” and an essay, “The Poet’s Garden.” I originally composed the work in response to the 1992 L.A. Riots and set it aside for some time. In 2020, with the police murder of George Floyd, I took up the project again and expanded and revised. The book suggests that only the essence of poetry can prove antithetical antidote—if there can even be one—to these human crimes and tragedies.
You may pre-order the book now via Gordon Hill Press: https://www.gordonhillpress.com/collections/titles/products/the-garden.
Here’s a better look at the cover:
And, great news, The Garden will be released with three additional Gordon Hill Press titles as part of their Spring launch.
Please join me to celebrate the official launch of these titles on Sunday, April 25, from 3:00 – 5:00 pm online. The event is free, but registration is required via Eventbrite.
