This poem was inspired by an incident in my childhood, thinking about how much our landscape has changed in the past two centuries. Click through the journal to Page 57, a lot of good stuff inside. https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5b9b40823e2d09817ccd4c5a/t/5d05aae2d800ce000111d7e4/1560652538926/TR131.2.pdf
The literary journal Fictive Dream has reposted “Artie’s Dodge” as part of their “Revisits” series. Honored and happy to see Curt and Artie riding again. https://fictivedream.com/2019/07/10/revisits-friendship/
Excited to have a poem in Typishly. The seed for this poem came from reading how the Google AI can now compose love poems. https://typishly.com/2019/06/22/robot-writes-a-love-poem/
Pleased to see this poem appear so close to Earth Day. I didn’t intend to write an environmental poem but the muse obviously had a greater purpose.
This poem features one of my favorite places, the beach in Santa Cruz, California. The Green Light Literary Journal is running daily poems for National Poetry Month.
This poem is drawn from my childhood growing up near Minneapolis, so I’m excited to see it appear in a Minnesota journal! The link below includes an audio file. I recently read “The Crossing” before a jazz band at the San Francisco Writers Festival, which was great fun, so when you listen to the audio you can imagine a slow, bluesy jazz progression in the background.
