Your first book, Spirit Brides, had a large geographical scope, covering four continents and numerous countries. Will your next book be as diverse?
The collection [has no set title yet, but will] before it goes to print next year. The poems are all set in rural Zimbabwe, so it will not have the international geography of Spirit Brides, but it will maintain a broad thematic territory. [It was written so that the general international reader shouldn't encounter any huge cultural hurdles.]
Both men spat red dirt—the tractors' engines echoing off cypress
windbreaks smudged silver with heat; gears, shafts and star-wheels
turning circled motion into windrows. Dust steamed off the grass,
the earth alive with lizards and field mice darting beneath kestrels
Could not explain
His unwanted advances,
Which wrecked his chances.
