Here is a site that warrants some attention. I like the sequences.

Eric Drooker's 's paintings are seen on covers of The New Yorker, The Progressive, The Village Voice and numerous other magazines, as well as books and music albums (Rage Against the Machine). He is the author of Flood! A Novel in Pictures, Illuminated Poems (with Allen Ginsberg), Street Posters & Ballads, and Blood Song: A Silent Ballad. He gives slide lectures at schools and cultural centers worldwide. Eric is a third generation New Yorker, born and raised on Manhattan Island.

Read Lawrence Ferlinghetti's poem. Explore his web site.

The Horse Barn Theatre "Poetry Reading" got a little blurb in the Argus Friday. Actually there are several things going on in Sioux Falls for National Poetry Month. The release even had names of the featured poets.

It was also announced on the local affiliate of NPR. The PR is getting better.

A heads-up on a Special Edition of Prairie Poetry, it will have a focus on the Lewis and Clark and is usually updated with new poems for the month on the first or second day of the month. It is an excellent online journal for prairie poets and those who appreciate the sparce nature of the plains.

Something worth checking out. April is National Poetry Month and the InfoPlease.com has some nice things relative to the celebration of poety. The quiz is informative and useful.

For example:

Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.

—from “Eating Poetry” by Mark Strand

A tribute to peace and my muse found in the dualism that drove a genius of the Renaissance.

Renaissance Ride

Land spreading out in all directions
glacial horizon defining the sky
the rising sun
powering the spirit wind for
prairie worship.

Wheels turning.
Breathing rhythmic.
Time suspended.

Motion harmonizing mind, body, and soul—
a symphony
performed on the genius of Leonardo.

I will be the featured poet at the Horse Barn Theatre on April 20, 7-9pm. I always like to have a bicycle theme in one or two of my poems for something like this. This might be a new one to add to my repertoire. I have also made a poster entitled Wired to Pythagoras of the pic I displayed here earlier. It can be found in January 18-24 archive. The proofs look really good.
