"I love the praise poem, the circles both small and large, the arms wrapped around the mother,  the chasing up and down for neither has but wants from the other--beautiful, global, mother/daughter poem.  Thank you"

Pamela Nomura came to Hartford, Connecticut via Hawaii, and calls both home. Recently, she spent time in the Southwest, exploring Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde, and the Chama Valley.

Denise Bergman lives in Massachusetts but has a connection to Albuquerque because her new poetry collection, A Woman In Pieces Crossed the Sea, won West End Press’s Patricia Clarke Smith Award and was published here in June. Those of us who knew Pat, know she would be pleased, and that she would…

The Sunday Poem: John Roche...

Posted on October 5, 2014 at 7:00am 5 Comments

John Roche is a familiar face in Albuquerque ever since he and Jules Nyquist became a couple. He’d been here before, checking out the scene, but now we can happily count on a more steady presence.

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.
