Second Sunday Poets to launch, feature John Burroughs on 3/10 in South Euclid

My next reading is March 10th at 3 p.m., where I'll have the honor of being the first featured poet for a new monthly series curated by M. A. "Doc" Janning, Poet Laureate of South Euclid, OH, at the Cuyahoga County Public Library's South Euclid-Lyndhurst branch. I hope you'll join me in supporting Doc in this new endeavor and bring something to share at the open mic.

Remembering Geri

Three years ago today, Geri posted this photo of us on Facebook. We never imagined that exactly one year later, when I left her at the hospital to go home and get some sleep, it would be the last time I saw her alive. She passed away on the morning of February 8th 2017. It feels like yesterday, or tomorrow. And there remain gaping holes that can never be filled.
