New & Uncollected

 

“In This America” and “Vachel Lindsay Walks the Roads of Kansas” are both included in the as yet unpublished collection The Letter Eye. The bog includes a comment on “In This America,” if you’re inclined to such things.

“Yusef Lateef Opens for The Byrds” is from Ticket Stubs & Liner Notes (winner of the 2018 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award) to be published in November.  The poems in this collection focus mostly on American music and musicians from the 1950s and 1960s.
