I am a fan of Amber Dawn’s writing and I hope to interview her for the site before too long.  In the meantime, let’s take notice of the launch of her new book!  Here is an excerpt from Plenitude Magazine where she glosas one of my poems.  My poem reads just like notes, and Amber Dawn’s continuation is a work of stunning clarity, surprise and resonance.  I have always been resistant to form poetry, but it is works like this, that speak to my community, my people, that convince me that it is not the play but the player that matters.
