I am a Ribbonfarm reader & a full time UX/UI designer living in the Hudson Valley of NY. Born in the early 80's.

My backstory/overdetermination includes punk rock, the whole gamut of nerd pop culture (video games, anime, etc), and a forever fascination with philosophy, theory, and the humanities.

I am a living series of struggling aspirations, and currently an aspiring poet.

I am also a medical anomaly, full of feedback-looping artificial organs (endocrinologic + cardiac)

@miksimum Welcome! My background is in literature and I've been doing some poetry translation this year, good to see someone else interested in humanities :)

@bkam Nice to hear from you! Academically, I’ve got a very general philosophy/design/media studies background - literature has always been one of my core fascinations. Who are you translating?

@miksimum Ah nice! I used to work in tech for a media company. I was translating Baudelaire and Rimbaud to see how they came out, my eventual goal is Céline. (I am not fluent in French.) What type of poetry are you writing?

@bkam

Thanks for asking! That can be hard question to answer...

It's not a well-defined type or form. Sort of standard-issue contemporary poetry, lyric free-verse with some recurring motifs (wild dogs, weather, body anxieties, parenthood)... still trying to hone my poetics by reading and experimenting.

All my published stuff so far is linked here: miksimum.com/publications/

Still trying to maintain my precious snowflake momentum on this endeavor... 1.5 years so far.
