(2:02 PM) | Adam R:
Poetry Offer!I am writing a book of poetry to be published by Narrow House Press. It will be out in the winter. It will be really awesome.
This book, it is going to be made up of poems about people. Here is what I have so far:
Elisabeth Elliot the evangelist
my grandmother Erma Ruth Rogers Tyner
Helene Cixous the post-structural feminist
a crazy guy I met on the street
Frederic Law Olmstead who designed Central Park
Xanana Gusmao the PM of East Timor
Joe Louis the boxer
Mario Mendoza whom they named The Mendoza Line after
and Soren Aabye Kierkegaard the strange Dane
I am also taking requests, so if you think of someone I should write about: comment away. If a poem about that person makes it into the book, I will acknowledge you as the originator of that person. Why not?
