The Sunday Poem: Larry Goodell... Screwballs of Infinity

Larry thinks all poetry is local. The place you are enters your voice and shapes your poems. He thinks poetry is alive and well but, like Alcoholics Anonymous, a helluva lot more people need its services. But poetry builds its own community of poet-publishers and eager listeners.

"Another great poem, Julie. I've loved them all, especially Hafez. I feared you had erred when you mentioned squirrels in trees, a rare sight in New Mexico, but you righted the ship with a reference to Iowa in short order. Thanks."

Old Walnut Tree

The old walnut tree still stands tall yet dying

down by the creek between the graveyard and my brother's house

still teaches lessons to its English Walnut children

the dead and anyone else patient enough to listen

A woodpecker tenders the gentle old soul …

Daddy’s bookshelves our only toys.…

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.
