The Sunday Poet: Kate Padilla

I met Kate Padilla when we were both Word Weavers, a group of Albuquerque women poets who have since disbanded. Kate’s talent is true to W.C. Williams’s dictum “No ideas but in things.” Kate whittles her poems like the work of her oft mentioned blades. Her message isn’t sharp in a hurtful…

The Sunday Poem: Mary McGinnis

What can I say about Mary McGinnis?

The concept of the whole manly thing was very interesting. Of course, I thought, "Was there really a need for such knowledge?".  I myself am a woman.
