Just in time for the end of a difficult year, here’s a new poem in The Coachella Review!
I hope you enjoy “Palliations of Early Summer” over in the latest Birch Gang Review. They’ve paired it with a photography: “Calumet Windows” by K. Carlton Johnson, which doesn’t look like many of the windows where I live now, but definitely resembles the sides of houses in places where the poem comes from. Take a look!
There are three poems up at Across the Margin. If we’re allowed to dig out own work a bit, I don’t mind saying that “Feast” and “Barking Spiders” are two of my favorites of the work I’ve done in the last few years. I hope you enjoy them, too.
The good people at The Cossack Review asked me some questions, and I did my best to give them answers–and a photograph with my chickens. You can scratch around the whole thing by following this link.
There’s a new issues of The Cossack Review, and you can find everyone who’s in it, and how to order a copy over at their website. There’s also a rumor that there will be contributor interviews up there pretty soon, over at The Volga, their blog (which already has some excellent content).
You can read a sample of the right here.
Among the 96 pages of action in the latest Carbon Culture Review is a poem called “Acts.” I hope you enjoy it, and pick up a copy to check out some of the graphic work they’re pairing with the literary goodness!
I cranked out this little sonnet for my students, and thought this would be a good place to share it. If you teach, and would like to use it, go for it! Just please let me know.
Please Don’t Center Poems
Please don’t center your poems. Margin left,
which is natural and easy on eyes.
The lines want to sit over here, chickens
on a perch, together and warm, left left.
Please don’t center your poems, since they are
not greeting cards, nor lyrics. They are not
the lines in the road, sides spaced for cars
to pass through, avoiding the swept clean curbs.
Please don’t center your poems, but feel free
. to play with the spacing a little bit.
. No one will die if a line wanders out
. with purpose: poetry as detective
. seeking answers in wide open danger
who makes it home, safely, or moves way out.
Note: the periods at the beginning of the lines in the last stanza are only to get the spacing to show up on here on WordPress.
Look for two poems in the latest Ping Pong. This issue also features a folio of poems from Central America: lots of work I’m excited to read!
Details for ordering and subscribing at here.
It’s an honor to be included in the latest Carbon Culture: The intersection of Technology + Literature + Art. To read “Public Radio” and “Bird Rock Avenue,” just click right here!
An additional poem, “Acts” made its way into the print edition, mentioned in a separate post.
If you come across A Sharp Piece of Awesome out of Taft College, I hope you enjoy a poem I have in there called “On a Morning of Resolve.” The design work from James Meetze is pretty wonderful, and the cover art by Kerry Hyatt makes it look very good!
It looks like my poem from Arsenic Lobster made it into the 2014 Anthology, which you can purchase right here!
The good people @SquackBack took a whole mess of poems!

The legendary Dan Gutstein (who runs Blood and Gutstein) was kind enough to interview me for Delphi Quarterly about a whole bunch of stuff–“Old School Values: A Conversation with Writer and Publisher Adam Deutsch.”
I hope you enjoy this little poem from a new manuscript in-progress. CA Conrad was kind enough to let me read it for Jupiter 88, and I’m not really angry, regardless of how I look…
I love InDigest, and they liked these two poems.
Here’s a poem from Prick of the Spindle, Vol. 8.1, for Xavier Robinson, and I hope he’s alright.
The good people at Similar Peaks have this poem for you…
Here’s a poem in Hawai’i Pacific Review. I hope you like it.
I hope you like this one over in Arsenic Lobster, 32, Summer 2013.

I hope you enjoy two poems from August 2013’s Caldera Culture Review.
Two poems from the July 2013 issue of Thrush, a wonderfully kind publication.
