During COVID-19 I dug into my stacks of paper that sit precariously in the corners of my room to pull out poems to make manuscripts for future works. Japan, A Good Listener, is the first of those rough manuscripts to reach completion. The book reflects on the geography of the country, and its relationship to the "ear" on the map of the world. I'll keep you updated with it's progress, but until then, here is a photo from the top of Mt. Fuji that may make it into the final book.
