"Apologies to all: some errant finger or swipe of a cursor cut off a last line in Glen's third poem. It has been fixed and I so apologize for not catching that sooner."

The Sunday Poet: Glen Sorestad

Glen is a Canadian poet who was a welcome surprise in my inbox last week.  He says he's been on the blog a couple of times, edited by different ditchriders.  Glen's poem "A Straightener of Nails," is a moving tribute to his father, reminiscent of the prose piece by Scott Russel Sanders' "An Inheritance of Tools."

The Sunday Poet: Don McIver

I've known Don since the late 80s when I ventured out to one of the original poetry venues in search for inspiration for my poetry spewing self. Don was a teenager seemingly hanging out in a crowd of mostly male, loud funny and talented spoken word poets. I didn't come back for years, but when I did, with students who…See More

I asked Bruce about water in that lovely, dusty little town of Magdalena, and he said things were ok, and his place out of town had a running well.   Darn! Wish I'd bought that mansion with the sign hanging loose, the gate scritchy and the yard dry. (Not Bruce's) A dream house.  But so it goes. We are…

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.
