The Sunday Poet: Tina Carlson

I've been hearing Tina Carlson's name in the poetry community. Granted, it can take me a long time to pick up on the au currant.  She read a moving piece at the NHCC on International Women's Day, and my friend Georgia praises her work.  So lo and behold, Tina sent me some…

The Sunday Poem: Mary McGinnis

What can I say about Mary McGinnis? I’ve been  fortunate to sit with her in a writing and dining group, happy to be in her aura of  infectious optimism, her joy in the creation of never-before-syntactically-linked phrases. She is a jewel of the desert, an arranger of desert jewels. I am so honored…

Rose of the mesa

I stumbled upon two poems by my sister, Professor Sharon Barba (Rising Tides) and was surprised that a comment was made to the mystery of the life and death of Rose at a relatively young age (49). The mystery is more that so few people seemed to have any interest at all. University of El Paso Texas honored her posthumously (Women in History) a couple years after her death and if not for Professor Lois Marchino, that would have never happened.

The Sunday Poem: Jessica Lopez and Christian Drake... Frida & Diego

A poem written by two people is pretty unusual, and here Lopez and Drake tackle one of the most complicated and passionate relationships that ever existed: that of Frida Kahloe and Diego Rivera. What an incredibly rich piece! Perhaps the only thing better than reading it would be watching them perform a video of them doing just that follows. Wow.

Christian Drake is a six-time National Poetry Slam team member, including the… Continue

Leaves are about to fall. This is a poem you really need to read before they do...because, as he says, "Leaves are the words of trees / whose chosen work is remembering."

Stewart S. Warren, writer and performance poet, was born 1950 into the affluent southern society of Tulsa, Oklahoma where, Stewart says, he was raised by slaves and all night gas station attendants.… Continue
