A Flurry of Additions

New to the Essays page is “The Anthologist and Bogus Haiku” (plus a new postscript), which recently appeared in Wales Haiku Journal—my response to the haiku content in Nicholson Baker’s poetic novel. The same journal also published a haiku sequence of mine, which you can now read as “More Northwest Plants and Flowers” on the Haiku and Senryu page. What’s more, they also published my “12 neon buddhas” photo-haiga—look for the link on the Haiga page. And new on the Haibun page is “Mercy Street” (with a new postscript), published in Akitsu Quarterly in the spring of 2020, and “January 26,” published in the August 2020 issue of Drifting Sands Haibun. And I have a new postscript, too, at the end of my “Sōseki, Not Buson: Attributing the White Chrysanthemum” essay. That should keep you busy for a while, if you’re interested.
