I recently had the pleasure of having a poem included in the art/poetry collaboration Estuary: A Confluence of Art & Poetry, in which “You Wanted to See the Lighthouse” is paired up with a couple of evocative images made by Arab-American artist Ilham Badreddine Mahfouz. You can read the poem and view one of Ilham’s paintings in all its high-rez glory here.

This was a really cool project to be involved in, and the end result, published by Moon and Mountain, is mighty pretty. If you got a pocketful of clams and a hankering for an art object, you can pick it up at their store. It makes a beautiful present — or just a gift for yourself!

Thanks to all the fine artists and poets involved in the collaboration.
