The Sunday Poem: Enid Howarth

Enid Howarth is a familiar face around Albuquerque, at poetry readings, concerts, and other cultural venues. You might run into her at a local coffee shop or market, always a pleasant encounter. I had heard that Enid writes poetry, and has done so for many years. When I asked if she would send me some of her poems for this…See More

This…See More

The Sunday Poem: Richard Oyama

Posted on April 19, 2015 at 6:30am 2 Comments

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.
