Page Poetry

The division between page poetry and performance poetry is a bit of an artificial dichotomy – there are poems I wrote as “performance pieces” which have died before every audience I have inflicted them on, while I have won slams with some of my “page poems”.

I’ve included poems on this page, if (a) they’re too short to use for a slam (b) they really don’t work in performance, and/or (c) they’ve been published in a journal.

Some of the links below are to the online journals Clear PoetryInk, Sweat and Tears, Message In A Bottle , Snakeskin, Amaryllis  and YourOnePhoneCall, which have been kind enough to publish my work. I’ve had others published in print journals which are not available online.
