New & Uncollected

 

“In This America” and “Vachel Lindsay Walks the Roads of Kansas” are both included in the as yet unpublished collection The Language of Smoke.  “Yusef Lateef Opens for The Byrds” is from the other as yet unpublished collection out knocking on doors, Riding with Wolfman Jack, poems focusing mostly on American music and musicians from the 1950s and 1960s.  The blog includes a comment on “In This America,” if you’re inclined to such things.
