This week The Good Men Project featured my holiday poem, Somehow the Music. It’s based on an experience I had taking my then 13-year-old daughter to play Christmas songs in a small ensemble orchestra at a nursing home. It’s a little depressing, I know. You can read it here.

My book The Trouble with Rivers was recently reviewed at Almost Uptown.
Here the reviewer calls the collection “unpretentious, lyrically beautiful, and surprisingly deep. Clauser’s sparse, densely- packed words frame his images and experiences with a zen-like quality that allows them to expand before the reader like, well, like a river… Clauser’s writing is unabashed in its harsh sentimentality, merging bitterness with love, death with renewal, and hope from the darkness- all without ever losing his simple, melodic tone…”

Hey, speaking of online pubs–here’s a new poem of mine online at the Foundling Review. I hope you like it, share with other people and spend time exploring the other good works there.
