David’s Piece “The Poetry of Rootlessness” is up at the North American Review blog!

“Is poetry, then—the singing of our displacement—the construction of a mobile emotional home that we can bring with us through all the changes and dislocations?… If poetry is a home, it’s not a home that brings us to rest.

David talks about envy on “On Writing”!

“Maybe you can broaden your definition of success so that it includes participating helpfully in a thriving writing community, a world where happy readers (God bless readers!) do get to read some good writing by some good people.
