"The subject matter resembles what one might read on the front page of the daily newspaper, but the spin is entirely different--poetic, beautiful, meaningful, in a way that the news cannot match. The newspaper will be buried deep inside a computer…"

The Sunday Poem Jules Nyquist...

Jules Nyquist arrived in Albuquerque from Minneapolis just over three years ago. Almost immediately, she became a valuable member of our poetry community, not only with her own poems—which seem to get better all the time—but with her contributions to our cultural life in general. Jules’ Poetry Playhouse, down at the…See More

"Good tack, good attack, good poems . . . "spies in your soup" has it come to that . . . and almost total lack of compassion, civility and common sense . . .  "

The Sunday Poem V.B. Price...

Posted on September 21, 2014 at 7:00am 3 Comments

I could go on at great length about V.B. Price, his Hollywood childhood, many hats (all worn thoughtfully, successfully and elegantly), deep love for and knowledge of New Mexico, life in poetry, meaningful career in the best sort of journalism, and teacher of philosophy to many generations of students. I could try to…

The sunday Poem Dee Cohen...

Posted on September 14, 2014 at 7:00am 6 Comments

Dee Cohen is a familiar face at any Albuquerque poetry event, on the periphery taking pictures of other poets reading, as well as behind the microphone herself. She has also been doing something else with her camera: giving us a photo a week of some location in Albuquerque—helping us discover parts of…

The Sunday Poem CAConrad...

Posted on September 7, 2014 at 7:00am 4 Comments

Hearing CAConrad read is a magical experience, and unexpected. His persona is different, genial, kind, engaged. But his poems are powerful blasts of truth to which we can all relate. He is the author of seven books including ECODEVIANCE: (Soma)tics for the Future Wilderness (Wave Books, 2014),…

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 especially appreciate how attuned he is to people’s speech, and how he incorporates that speech into what…

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.
