The Sunday Poet: Joseph Somoza

Joe Somoza saw that I was publishing Glen Sorestad a couple of weeks ago and consequently sent me a few poems to enrich my geezer collection.(No offense as I too am a geezer.) I haven't met Joe, that I recall, though we may have published him in the Rag. I seem to have heard his name in our eclectic poetry community, I am…See More

The Sunday Poet: Jill Oglesby

The poet Jill Oglesby is not only a dog and a cat person, but when she reads her poems she's known to break into song, in Gaelic!Jill’s selection of poems led me to a state of awareness that I new I’d been seeking but couldn’t quite pull off. She pulls it off; she gives a setting then invites the reader in to loll in the…See More

Michael C Ford hails from Hollywood, or thereabouts. He’s Southern California and movie star poetic. I think Richard Vargas brought him out to ‘Burque, and Michael took to the scene here, complimenting The Rag and other local endeavors making us feel discovered! Praised!  He came to my house for an…

I've been hearing Tina Carlson's name in the poetry community. Granted, it can take me a long time to pick up on the au currant.  She read a moving piece at the NHCC on International Women's Day, and my friend Georgia praises her work.  So lo and behold, Tina sent me some…

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.
