I just sent my corrected page proofs back to Turning Point Books, along with an updated photo (now on this blog — this is the poet me, not the executive director me any longer) and the credit for David’s painting which will be on the cover.

One of the first times David and I got together he had a stack of his paintings in the back of his car, in the middle of moving them to his apartment.  He brought several in to show me, and we sat on the coffee table, facing the couch where he propped the paintings so I could see them.  When he showed me the painting above, I looked at it for a moment, then looked at David and said, “It reminds me of me.”

“I know,” he said.  “The title is ‘Grace’.”  He had painted it 2 years before.
