New poetry booklet: "Art in Heaven"
Monday, 24 Aug 2015
My new poetry booklet, "Art in Heaven", has just been published by Sow's Ear Press. (ISBN 0-9543248-2-X.)
"Art in Heaven" is a sequence of pared-down sonnets in unrhymed iambic trimeter. The ordinary lives of the people in them are conveyed in spare detail. Most are stricken by desire or regret, some by indifference. Memory haunts or comforts them. Woods handles them all with the same dispassionate intensity.
