Sunday Poetry Double Feature: Sylvia Ramos and Rich Vargas

A Double Feature:  Because the Fix is moving over to Facebook at the end of this month, last I heard, and I have three poets in the chute, I am giving readers a two-fer today.* * * *Having been a surgeon in her workaday world, I believe Sylvia carries a scalpel to the editing table. Her clean images, lines, and content…See More

Sunday Poems: Faith Kaltenbach

Faith Kaltenbach  is a new voice in the neighborhood for me. She calls herself a student poet, but I'd say she's earned life credits.  Thank you, Faith!  Just in the knick of time to be among the last of years' worth of Sunday Poets. The Fix owners have given their notice.  At best I will publish Faith and one or two…See More

Megan Baldrige: A New Mexican Considers Borders

Megan sent me her polished piece, quite original with three stanzas. I hope you enjoy; there are likely to be a few more published here (from various poets) in the near future. Albuquerque poets? Send me your ghazals, your tired villanelles . . . ”Give me . . .your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free/ The…See More

The Sunday Poet: Havva Houshmand

I met Havva Houshmand when I started teaching at CNM in 2003. She was a goddess, gorgeous, elegant, dark wavy hair and a sweet Middle Eastern accent. There were always those who flocked around her to hear her take, her voice, her humor. Years later I traved to Zacatecas, Zacarteca, in Mexico with a handful of teachers…See More

Sunday Poetry: Bill Nevins

Bill answered my request a while back (thank you, Bill), to help fill this space for poets, so wonderfully conceived by Jon Knudsen some several years back. Bill is back in Burque, now. I believe, after spending weeks up near Angel Fire. I had a narrow window and a gracious invitation, but the heat, the…

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.
