PRESENTING: Plumstuff

Hello, Friends – – –

A poet-robot … a chain-smoking seductress … a dying connoisseur. All of these characters and more make appearances in my new collection of poems and drawings, Plumstuff, out today.

Plumstuff is a reinvention of my out-of-print debut Plum Stuff. It contains 20 revised poems from that collection plus 40 new ones — and all-new drawings.

Poems and drawings from Plumstuff have appeared in The Walrus, Rattle, The Saturday Evening Post, The Wall Street Journal, Transition, The Feathertale Review, The New Quarterly, Quarterly West, The Antigonish Review and other outlets.

Here’s what the critics are saying…

“This is a book for those who truly love words.” – Cloud Lake Literary

“Bursting full in its depths.” – Cinnabar Moth

“Sit with these poems … give them a 2nd or third go-round. Let them marinate the brain a bit so you can fully savor the flavor.” – The Poetry Conversation

“A wonderful collection of poetry and drawings.” – Grist

There are many ways to get your hands on Plumstuff

In Canada, order autographed copies from The Penny University (my favorite indie bookstore/coffeeshop).

My own online store, The Rolli Shop, ships to every country on earth.

And there’s always Amazon USA, Amazon Canada and Amazon UK.

Whatever the method, I hope you enjoy the book. It was a labor of love and I couldn’t be happier with it.

Take care, friends.

Hope you enjoy the stories, friends. If you do, I hope you’ll consider buying me a coffee. Every cup helps.

Though I’ve closed comments to prevent abuse, I do hope you drop me a line some time.

Short Circuit

Hello, Friends – – –

The final issue of one of my favorite magazines, Short Circuit, is out today.

A bittersweet moment, but I’m happy to have two pieces in it.

The first is a very short story, The Sweet Striper.

The second is a poem, I do not begrudge the young.

I hope you enjoy them…

That’s all for now, friends.

POEM: Friday Night

Friday night

I was drunk on
sauvignon

writing
triolets

my note-
pad slanting
to catch
the lamp-
light

For a moment
closing
my eyes

I woke
as the dawn
was putting on
its clothes

From my new collection of poems and drawings, Plumstuff.
