My video poem “Clockwork Heart” is up on Apiary!

Hey, my video poem is up on the Apiary website at

The video was shot by cool Apiary hive-master Nick! Nick rocks! I believe there is also an interview with me somewhere on the website, but I have yet to toggle around looking for it because this weekend is also the www/ inaugural kick-off, which is keeping me busy! Enjoy, and be on the lookout for more work from me this Sunday in the Inquirer’s Currents Sections where I talk about canoeing in the Pine Barrens. It’s been a great writing week!

Gleaner’s Cafe Video Shoot



Today I met with Nick from Apiary magazine in the Italian Market this morning to shoot a short video for my poem “Clockwork Heart”. He also interviewed me about the Philadelphia poetry scene. It should run in the next month or so. A nice start to the day! We talked about the poems inspiration and my early writing workshop experiences as a kid. It was nice to give props to my former English teachers and the Writers in the Schools workshop in WV where I worked alongside poet Angela Shaw in a class led by poet Devon MacNamara.
