Yes, I know, the pandemic is not over, but in a manner of speaking for me it is. I spent a fine portion of February in bed with the world's favorite contagion. The good news, for some people anyway, is that I had just finished off a good deal of work before symptoms set in, and then I recuperated by writing some new work. The result is the following omnium gatherum of poetry, interviews, and essays.
Included this month are two interviews, one with Latin Mass magazine and another with America First Weekly, both discussing the relationship of poetry, everyday life, and the divine. My latest poem, which just this week fell out of season, "Snowfall," appeared in National Review. My latest column for The Catholic Thing, "Freedom for Form" has just appeared and, finally, the first of my two essays on the Harlem Renaissance poet Claude McKay appeared in Catholic Arts Today. Find a picture at right and click on it; scroll down as there is a lot here! Each picture will take you someplace new and interesting, I hope.
