He discovered our wonderful literary community a few years ago and is a…See More

The Sunday Poet: Debbi Brody

I first met Debbi at the Fixed & Free bike shop where the new bike shop owner, Sam, graciously shared his space and let us have monthly readings, the name of his shop and the forms of poems so happily entwined.  Debbi’s work caught my attention then with themes so primal and relevant, au currant and ancient.

The Sunday Poet: John Egbert

I’ve known John since his two daughters and my two daughters were in Monte Vista Elementary together. Now we’re both grandparents, retired, and meeting again in the poetry world.

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.
