“It’s good to be with Angela Janda in Small Rooms with Gods. ‘There is so much prayer here,’ she says, ‘that a person hardly knows what to do. / But give away parts of themselves, / in pieces, or as a whole thing’— which is exactly what she does in this marvelous collection. She writes from both then and now—partly Antigone and always herself. What is especially wonderful is the way Angela lives through Antigone just as she can ‘see through lonely to the wide / open.’ One of the many strengths of this collection is the absolute sparseness and beauty of the language.”

In April 2011, I performed in a Theaterwork production staged in the abandoned Tino Griego Municipal Pool off Llano St in Santa Fe.  The play was Antigone by Jean Anouilh.  Before and during and after my time in the pool, I wrote a book of poems, partly in Albuquerque, partly in Santa Fe, and partly in a little cabin in Moriarty, NM.  That little book went out into the world and found a publisher.
