When I met Don Wentworth of Modest Proposal Chapbooks and Lilliput Review at Haiku North America, it was a lucky day.
Gary Hotham is one of my favorite poets. I always carry around his book, Breath Marks. Don was fortunate enough and smart to publish some of Hotham’s work. I bought it all.
How does that Stanley Kunitz poem go?“The great clock of your life is slowing down, and the small clocks run wild.”
This is the focus of Hotham’s work. I will be doing an interview with Hotham in days to come.
