Saddened by the death of the great Irish poet Ciaran Carson in 2019, I studied his last book of poems (Still Life) which were entirely ekphrastic. As a tribute to Carson, I wrote my own ekphrastic poetry using the artwork he wrote about. Our perspectives are quite different.

"Impossible White Goat" was published in Kenyon Review in print only, May/June 2021, v.53.3.

"When I Can't See" and "Listening My Way Back" came out in Kenyon Review Online in May 2021 which you can find here:
