Christopher Mulrooney has written poems and translations in Los Angeles Journal, Chiron Review, Segue, Burning Leaf, The Drunken Boat and Voices Israel; criticism in Pyramid, The Film Journal and Parameter; and a volume of verse called "notebook and sheaves" (AmErica House, 2002).

Ponce de Leon would you like to know
the whereabouts of all claims
to knowledge about
life lust and
lost loves

here at the podium in a major policy address
the sea captain with a pink
admiral's hat
pulled down around his ears

down around the parlor
in the dead of night

in the great chair
that thing is met

sparkling wine chilled
