Book update: new title!

Just a quick update on book progress:

The editing and shaping process has been wonderful thus far. I think we're close to a final version. The big news is that the book will have a new title: Translation.

This was the original title, many years ago, prior to playing about with dozens of others. It feels most appropriate to the intuitions and content of the collection, so I'm really excited to officially be returning to it.

More updates soon!

Unbelievably excited to have my poem, "A Whale's Heart," included in this year's Best New Poets anthology. Many thanks to series editor Jazzy Danziger and Dorianne Laux for selecting the poem. For the complete table of contents, check out the Best New Poets blog, here.
