Concrete Meat Press Recommends

Concrete Meat's Adrian Manning says, "The latest poet to be added to Concrete Meat Press Recommends page is the awesome John Burroughs. Check out his words and those of many others here:"

I'm tickled that he selected my poem "Dish Work," from Water Works, to be featured there.  It was written several years ago about a time in 1986 when Geri and I were working together at Columbia Hills Country Club and just getting to know each other.

Uncaged Low Kay Shun: Burroughs Live at the 2017 Underground Lit Fest

Many thanks to Bill Yarrow for recording me reciting two poems during the Underground Lit Fest hosted by the Literary Underground at the Uptown Arts Lofts in Michigan City, Indiana. The poems are "John Cage Engaged and Uncaged" and "Low Kay Shun." Please forgive my flubbing the line about Dick Van Dyke and my assaulting our host's innocent cup of coffee.

My "Abbreviate" featured 7/7 in Winedrunk Sidewalk

I am honored to report that my short poem "Abbreviate" was recently featured (day 169 - July 7th) in Winedrunk Sidewalk. Many thanks to editor John Grochalski!

Because the day it was published was the day I departed for my cross-country trip I'm just now blogging about it.

And they're still accepting submissions of poems and art as we speak.
