Just want to encourage you all to swing by the new Pemmican, where you’ll find some fine new poems by Lyle Daggett (here and here). In one of my favorites, “road song and annunciation,” you’ll get to walk with Tom McGrath on Whitman’s open road and see wonderful sights like these:
… a gap in the fence where
a spring colt
canters off cattywampus
the tack and yammer of a one-eyed crow
from a lone pine
hallooing down the small rain…
Any poem with “cattywampus” in it is bound to be good. And isn’t that the western wind at our backs…?
