Thinking Singing

Thinking Singing: Selected Poems provides a selection of my work translated (for the first time) into Italian by the extraordinary poet/translator Anny Ballardini. I began publishing my poetry in the early 1970s, and after many publications in magazines, my first book-length collection appeared in the early 1990s.
Rather than a comprehensive selection of mu poems over the past forty years, Thinking Singing represents a more focused endeavour.
