well hello there

welcome! you can find links to download the PDF book layout and audiobook versions of all four of my poetry collections here! all are FREE! please note that all audio links will take you to a reliable outside site to access the files. the audio for cling as ink and midwestern skirt are hosted on SoundCloud for streaming as the latter is brand new and the former is online for the first time. the others are downloadable as MP3s from a secure storage site.

there are some fairly “mature themes” and “cuss words” included in a few of my “writings.” i wouldn’t consider those sorts of things to be my default or the norm but just FYI. i’ve lived a few lives. my first book, midwestern skirt, is pretty intense in its detail of certain aspects of my life and situations but i try to write by evoking emotion and senses and not being too explicit.

if you like or dislike strange noise and found sounds then you will really like or dislike my audiobooks. i like (but do not dislike) concocting my own soundscapes alongside my wordscapes.

i really, really hope that something catches your ear or eye in the best possible way here.

thank you for taking a look or listen,
k weber

cling as ink (2018)

CAI_cover

August 30, 2018, finds me unveiling my latest poetry project!

cling as ink includes 45 poems by me that each use a title corresponding to poetry, short fiction, and visual art from the 1997-1998 issue of my college literary magazine, Inklings. This particular volume was published 20 years ago, when I was the editor. My poems are next to my writings about the original works that had the title I used as well as the authors and artists behind them. There is a fair amount of reflection on my time on the staff of Inklings and at Miami University.

This is a large body of work. You can stream this audiobook on SoundCloud. A carefully-created downloadable PDF contains the visual book layout.

i should have changed that stupid lock (2014)

ISHCTSL_COVER

This one’s a bit bleak in places, but I am always thankful when I can write for therapy and posterity.

I don’t even know what more to say about i should have changed that stupid lock because it really howls and cries out for itself. It’s not overly dramatic – much of it was written from a deep pit of feeling still stirring, raw, in a very numb place.

bluest grey (2012)

BG_COVER_002

It took 9 years for me to put together a follow-up to midwestern skirt. I decided at the time, with all the technology pulsing around me, to approach my collection as a digital project. I was able to incorporate more poems, dabble in music, have my poems heard by my own voice, and countless other multimedia opportunities.

I had a lot of fun writing these poems and finding a new way for readers to access and enjoy them.

midwestern skirt (2003)

MWS_COVER

For the first time, midwestern skirt is available digitally. Enjoy these poems in both the downloadable PDF book format and the MP3 audiobook!

This was my first collection of poems and was originally presented in a small run of print copies I collated on my floor. Small but mighty, these 18 poems mostly encompass a year off the rails with a foot still in nature, a heart trapped in hard lessons, and a brain trying to find balance.

This is the only poetry compilation of mine that does not feature any sort of music or sounds in the audiobook. As this book was very bare bones at the time, I wanted to keep the audiobook a bit scant.

As with all my online book project pieces: enjoy midwestern skirt entirely free:
