Months ago my poem “Underfoot” was selected by Georgia’s poet laureate Chelsea Rathburn for the “Poetry in the Parks” program. Dawn and I finally had a minute to take a walk through Decatur’s Glenlake Park to look for it.

Kumbu’s Gift, a projected trilogy of eco-comic novels, precipitated by a brush with cancer in 2006. It’s the improbable tale of a circus chimp and the humans who campaign to rescue him from captivity. Meanwhile, back in Africa, his wild relatives rescue a hapless hunter lost in the jungle . . . and the long-separated evolutionary paths of humans and chimps hilariously re-converge. Book 1, Free Ralph!,  and Book 2, The Kumbu Liberation Front, now complete.

Honk If You’re Awake!, Wing’s collected political poetry, with an introductory essay on the usefulness of poets who engage with the struggles and aspirations of ordinary people’s lives.
