We know him not only as a fine poet, but also as the editor of Malpais Review, an exciting local poetry journal that puts out quarterly issues of up to 300 pages and has moved far beyond our city and state to…See More

""Overture" is outstanding. It reminds me of me. For much of my life I have ignored detail that I thought was unimportant, and found I was wrong, and less often, but sometimes, sought out detail that now seems trivial. "

The Days of the Dead have become almost as much of a yearly ritual in Albuquerque as they are south of the border in Mexico. The city’s annual Day of the Dead Parade attracts some ten thousand people. Often called The Day of the Dead (singular), this festival honoring death…

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.
