(And if you think that title sounds funny, you should have been around when ditch published my poem “squat”)
I am pleased to announce that the current issue of ditch, a Canadian online magazine of innovative and experimental poetry, is featuring five of my poems from Ride Backwards on Dragon. Read them here.
If you are wondering about the odd titles of the poems… The 66 poems in my book are patterned after the 66-move sequence of the Liuhebafa main form. The Liuhebafa names themselves, once decoded, reveal an ancient recipe for personal transformation. I have done my best to decode the Taoist metaphysical symbolism of each of these 66 names in a series of endnotes filling the last 28 pages of the book.
