So I've got this new book ...

Who Comes Calling?
(published by WAPP)

It's got all the old favourites like "Bumboat Cruise on the Singapore River", "Searching for Words", and (of course), "Home".

It's also got plenty of the new favourites like "Still Searching", "Catching the L-Words", and "In Memory of Katrina Miles".

On Who Comes Calling?


There are so many gifts here:

History experienced as history lived in a body; kindness and the difficulty of kindness; tender and patient reflection in the presence of pain. In the face of bullet holes. This is a work of generational, locational and situational instrospection that yields, at its own life-fruiting pace, a gleaning—of courageous clear-seeing; of compassion addressed to contradiction and contention; of empathy.

I am thankful it came calling.

This is where I keep things:

This is where I celebrate:
This is where I mourn:

tiny ideas, proto-poems, a single imperfect line.
books I like, objects that provoke questions,
images that tell stories.
publications and projects.
loss and what-didn’t-work-out.
