Here is the original volume side by side with the 34 years later sequel. This time, myself and 46 other Milwaukee poets are rendered in this volume. You can pre-order a copy here, otherwise join us for the release event at 7:00pm on Thursday, May 25.

I participated in a reading this winter in which participants were challenged to recite a poem by another poet. I picked one of my favorites, Lying in a Hammock at William Duffy’s Farm in Pine Island, Minnesota by James Wright (here if you’d like just the text). Below is my rendition via video. I have no idea what I said to make people laugh as this video starts, and I guess we never will. I think that’s terrific.

Poem at Sideburn Magazine

February 17, 2017

It’s not too often that motorcycle publications have poems, let along poems that feature the word “lovely.” But on a whim I sent this to Sideburn, minutes after writing it, and they put it on their blog. Read For The Birds here at Sideburn.

A Winter Poem for July

July 12, 2016

Here is a poem I had published in Great Lakes Review, as part of their Narrative Map project. I’m really glad this publication is seeking to feature writers from the “Middle Coast,” known historically as flyover territory in a variety of ways. It runs alongside this picture I took after a snowstorm, when I skied to work to open the tiki bar.
