April is National Poetry Month!

so why not celebrate by reading some poetry, sharing some poetry, maybe writing some poetry and, best of all, supporting some poets!

my dear friend and wonderful poet Beverly Jackson has just published a chapbook. I highly recommend you buy it for yourself or someone you love. here's how:

send $11 to Paypal at

or check to: Beverly Jackson, 102 Adams Hill Road, Asheville, NC 28806


"To Be Water"

not in water--
not swimmer, whale or porpoise plunging
under surface glint, controlled by ocean--

but to be sea,
the slack-jawed, spooky renegade
of slosh and swell, tidal flood,
blind mammoth rolled in slumber...

want to read the rest? you know you do! get a copy, before the print runs out.

I bought it. It's great.

I'm doing a poem a day in Sharon Hurlbut's office for April. Also, posting them in my blog.
