"Two stunning pieces!  Broad in scope, intimate in their imagery.  It takes guts to try capturing a city, state, and people...but Jessica has done it!  This is what Poet Laureates are for.  Thanks to JHL and Margaret as well."

"Not the safest corner, huh? But I can feel the humanity in your words and the thankfulness for having a roof when others don't. Thanks for the poems. Dee"

The following 5-part poem started as separate poems. Don told me I could chop them up if I wanted, but I prefer to present them as he sent them to me: linked snapshots of…See More

Doug Dunston lives in Albuquerque and teaches at New Mexico Tech in Socorro. His creativity is multiple and often unexpected. In 2014 he self-published a small book called Practical Creativity: 33 Meditations. Meditations or poems, the brief texts drew me. I read and reread them. In fact I found…

Was it you who posted the Frida and Diego poem? Stunning! I sent copies to a dozen friends. In fact that poem , which I read on Jon Knudson's blog, was a major reason I tracked down Duke City. The other reason is that if I ever move back to the States, it would be to live in or around Albuquerque.

Thanks for your response to my post about Harrison Ridley. Don't know if you're from Philly and knew of him but, well, he was a beautiful soul.
