My Next Book

Is coming out soon: Dating Tips for Conservatives: A New Poetry Primer for a Desperate Age.

The title comes from a line in the poem “V.”

Details forthcoming…

V

A girl named Bambi
left a heart-shaped box of chocolates
in my locker in sixth grade.

The photo of the nurse and the sailor
on V-J Day by Albert Eisenstaedt,
the woman dressed all in white
and arched like a crescent moon.

Eve Ensler with black bangs,
black dress and bright red lips.

Dating tips for Conservatives:
“Take her to a gun range.
Shooting some rounds with your girlfriend
is a great way to spend Valentine’s Day.”

Cartoon caption:
“If I can’t buy you dinner,
at least let me pay you for sex later.”

Eros with arrows,
again with the shooting.
