My trip to Europe in 2003 was sem­inal. I wrote more in the short time I was there than I had for ages. I was inspired by the Spanish land­scape, by friends, by a search for his­tory and my roots, by sexy men I met on fer­ries in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Fugaz, the title of this col­lec­tion and the title poem of the col­lec­tion, means “shooting star” in Spanish.

As usual, bear with me as I decide which poems see the light of day.
