Immediately after graduating, he was offered a teaching position in English and Creative Writing at the State University of New York at Fredonia, where he taught for 34 years. He is the author of nine books of poetry, which include ABSOLUTE ZERO (2018), THE GRANDSON OF HEINRICH SCHLIEMANN & OTHER TRUTHS AND FICTIONS (2014), INSTEAD (2007), and Blues for Port City (1995) from Mayapple Press, and co-translator of five collections of Chinese poetry, one of which won the PEN USA Translation Award. His poems have been published in 34 anthologies and in several hundred magazines.
