Big thanks to The Nation & poetry editor, Kaveh Akbar, for sharing “I Wake in the Dark.”
What a delight to have this conversation recently with Mitzi Rapkin on her stellar “First Draft” podcast. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did… Be sure to check out the back catalog, too! George Saunders! Isabel Allende! Viet Thanh Nguyen! Diane Seuss!

“A Stone,” which originally appeared in The Threepenny Review, is now up at Guesthouse.
Big thanks to 32 poems, for giving a home to these thoughts on the beauty of revision…
My thanks go out to John Miller, for delving so thoughtfully into my translation of the Popol Vuh, on his Great Books Podcast, courtesy of the National Review!
