a gathering of links 2


We continue our collection of links sent to us by Heron Tree poets. We hope you will enjoy the chance to re-read their poems on the site and learn more about their work elsewhere.

Justin Hamm (“From the Poet“) has just had his book Lessons in Ruin published by Aldrich Press. You can order a signed copy at his website, and if you scroll down that page you can find links to several of the poems included in the collection.

Susan Rich (“Imagine My Love Underneath These Years“) sent us a link to an audio interview at The Drum which starts with her reading two poems, “Tricks a Girl Can Do” and “Cloud Pharmacy.” She also passed along information about her availability as a consultant for other poets.

Robert King (“Reading the River” and “Closing the Book“) has three poems at Fruita Pulp-–“An Apple,” “Two Kinds,” and “American Lakes Trail”—and two poems at Turtle Island Quarterly—“The Donkey Again” and “The Childhood of My Circus.”

Jason Primm (“Ballooning“) offers readers a link to “Poor Hylas” at Pantheon Magazine and to three poems at Seltzer, “Ms. Penelope,” “Land-line,” and “Vodka.”

John Palen (“The Catch-All“) gives us the opportunity to read “Prairie at Night” at Bluestem as well as the chance to hear “The Catch-All” read by Lania Knight in this video made in honor of National Poetry Month last April.

David James (“Camus Re-Invented in Linden, Michigan“) wrote a review of Robert Haight’s Feeding Wild Birds for Poets’ Quarterly. You can also read a review of David’s second book of poems, She Dances Like Mussolini, at Rattle.

Carol Berg (“The Ornithologist Searches For A Shared Ancestry“) is the author of Her Vena Amoris, available from Red Bird Chapbooks, and Ophelia Unraveling from dancing girl press; each link provides ordering information and an excerpt from Carol’s work.
