Notes from Los Angeles

Last night, I drove to Beyond Baroque, a literary mecca in Venice, to see Ara Shirinyan speak. Ara teaches with me at Mt. SAC, and he writes poetry. Lately, he has been writing found poems almost exclusively.


Found poets are people who find their poetry in other people’s writing. They find a phrase or even paragraph and turn it into poetic form as a way to observe the world. It sounds like a short cut to writing – possibly even…

The Femme Fatale and the Bad Boy are Sister and Brother

You've met her.  Maybe not in person, but she appears in almost every James M.

Women wonder why men are so stupid they can't recognize her for what she really is.
