In nuking my page I also nuked most of the stuff I had here. A couple poems and a story are all that remain.
Poem on Pascal's Triangle, April 8, 1996. We were experimenting with sestinas and villanelles for 76-265. Again, being a math/CS geek, I decided to write this sestina.
Matthew, September 10, 1996. This poem is about my friend Matt Devos, who graduated in May 1996, and I missed him a whole lot, so I wrote a poem about him.
A Love Swung Over J. Alfred Prufrock, November 5, 1996. I love T.S. Eliot, especially his Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock poem, but I was in a weird mood and decided I needed to parody it. Unfortunately nobody in my workshop had actually read the original, so they didn't really get this poem either...
Gimme a Love Poem, and Hold the Ketchup, December 10, 1996. (revised March 1997). This poem was published in the Spring 1997 issue of the Oakland Review.
b&w, March 14, 1997. We had to write a sonnet for our Reading Poems class, and I had photography on my mind, so I wrote this... it was published in the April 1998 issue of Dossier.
Kanji-chan, Aug 27, 1998. This is about my friend Carl doing his Japanese homework.
Thinking of You, September 3, 1998. I was inspired by William Carlos Williams and Kenneth Koch for this one..
Numerology, Oct 1, 1998. Brad Keryan helped me come up with most of the numbers for this one.
Ice Cream For Breakfast, November 4, 1998. Inspired by, well, ice cream. :)
Order Notation, first written in April 1996 and then revised in March 1997 for Adamson submissions. I still wonder if anyone not associated with computer science would understand it.
Resisting Arrest, October 21, 1998. Written prior to my father's heart attack, oddly enough.
Wreckognition, last revised April 16, 1998. This was also published in the Dossier.
I wrote a lot more fiction than poems in college, volume-wise. This was my best work. It won an Adamson Award in the Spring of 1997. It's called Ballroom Barbie.
