The steady, insidious business of snow. A chickadee lands on a small branch and samples its line of white powder.

OK, so that's a less than ideal form for an update to take. I'll unlink the Morning Porch from Google+ until the Jetpack plugin's auto-post feature improves.

The dispatcher scribbled on the package, 'Thanks for your patience as I scramble to catch up with the sudden influx of chapbook orders'. A good problem. I wish I could boast of similar interest in 'AL'!

Story
Tagline
writer, publisher, bum
Introduction
I'm a poet, editor, and web publisher from the eastern edge of western Pennsylvania. I'm managing editor of the online literary magazine qarrtsiluni; curator of Moving Poems, home to the best poetry videos on the web; and sole reporter and publisher of the hyperlocal microblog The Morning Porch, available wherever newspapers are tweeted. I've been blogging since 2003 at Via Negativa.

For publication credits and all that crap, see my personal website at davebonta.com.
Bragging rights
I have eight poems in a new anthology from Carolina Wren Press (US) and Grey Mare Press (UK): "The Book of Ystwyth: Six poets on the art of Clive Hicks-Jenkins"
