Twelve Simple Songs

A short cycle of poems in dialogue with photographs about an intercontinental love affair, available in multiple formats:

And last but certainly not least,

The poems first appeared at Via Negativa (1-10, 11, 12), and I also blogged about making the e-book and my reactions to the film. Nic blogged about Twelve Simple Songs as an example of multi-format poetry publishing, and Swoon posted some process notes to his blog.
