The Sunday Poem Mitch Rayes...

I love Mitch Rayes’ work. Each time I have an opportunity to hear him read, I come away deeply fulfilled, and mystified as to why this excellent poet doesn’t yet have a published book.

I heard Sawako Nakayasu read at Naropa University’s Summer Writing Program in Boulder this past June. I and everyone else in the audience were captivated by the hard-hitting poetry that contrasted with her quiet demeanor. This was the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics’ 40th…

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.
