About The Book
What a long conversation
we never had!
All those rivers?
we never crossed together.
You so busy with your own life,
I so busy with mine.

His work has been anthologized five times in the Best American Poetry volumes, and has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Tricycle, The Buddhist Poetry Review, and The American Poetry Review, as well as numerous other publications.
