The Sunday Poem: Renny Golden

I knew about Renny Golden long before we met. I had read her first poetry collection, back in the 1980s, because the other poet with whom she collaborated on that book had a daughter who was a good friend of my youngest daughter—the intergenerational webs that encircled and uplifted us back then. As I kept reading Renny…See More

"Yes. Definitely experienced a tapping sensation, actually more of a drilling sensation on my tooth."

Ben Moffett commented on The DitchRider's blog post The Sunday Poem: Joanne Bodin
"I understand Poe wrote his epic poem in a dark and dreary atmosphere, too. But it was midnight, not 10 a.m. Also, he noted that "suddenly there came a tapping." I suspect you experienced that sensation, too, a some point."

"Thank you Ben for your thoughtful comments. I actually wrote that poem in the dentist office waiting to get a new filling.  The sky was so dark at 10am that it inspired me even in the most mundane circumstances of every day life (dental work)."

The Sunday Poem: Hettie Jones...

Posted on January 11, 2015 at 7:00am 3 Comments

I remember Hettie Jones from the New York poetry scene of the late 1950s and early ‘60’s. We were a handful of women back then, among a roster of male poets. Best known for How I Became Hettie Jones, her memoir of the “beat scene” of the fifties and sixties, Jones is the author of 23 books for children…

Later I came up to read in Placitas, in what has since evolved into the extremely successful Duende Poetry Series at the Winery in that village north of the city. Larry was a stalwart in the poetry world then, and continues to be.…

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.
