How do the animals treat you?
While I work on my next Substack essay, on the Epicureanism of the aesthete, allow me to briefly share two recent publications.
A poem of mine titled “Rough Slabs of Jade” appears in the current (November 23, 2023) issue of The New York Review of Books. It can be read online, though the formatting there is off. If you aren’t a print subscriber, consider picking up the issue.
For the web-based journal of NYC independent movie theatre Metrograph, I wrote a little essay on a short film by the experimental filmmaker Peggy Ahwesh. Metrograph, if you don’t know it, is one of the great new institutions of our time: consistently excellent programming, fine restaurant, a streaming library full of treasures.
Sometime in the new year, too, I will have a suite of five poems out in the journal Liberties—also one of our great new institutions. I hope you’ll look out for those.
