LA-Telephone-2-CoverThe L.A. Telephone Book Vol. 2 is now out! Put together by poet Brian Kim Stefans, this directory of sorts pulls together work by SoCal writers and text-artists. Four of my poems are in the book. Here’s the beginning of “Eager”:

These days I’m an accidental sadist, scouting out inconveniences. Throw me a curve ball and I’ll catch it, if it falls in my quiet hand. Masochism’s so pedestrian, haven’t we all almost been hit by a car.

The other poems are “Opener,” ”Tidier,” and “Brighter.” Download the whole book as a PDF — free! — to enjoy poems from Will Alexander, Diana Arterian, Chris Stoffolino, Thérèse Bachand, Molly Bendall, and many others.
