Some new additions to Graceguts include a couple of poems added to the Parodies, Homages, Allusions page, available through the Haiku and Senryu page, where you can also find “The Mended Shōji,” an extended sequence of haiku I wrote on my first trip to Japan, recently published in Clover: A Literary Rag. The latter is also available through the Sequences page. The Interviews page now includes “Issa Explored,” a short commentary by Donna Fuchsluger on my study of the poet Issa, plus a brief appreciation by Laurie W. Stoelting of one of my poems. As always, you’ll also find various updates to links, events, and more on other pages throughout the site. Pull up a chair and sit a spell!
