Check out my three poems in that great Australian literary magazine, Contrappasso, Issue 8, 2015.
Here’s the way one of them starts:
Like Smoke Streaking From Every Shoulder
Al Curtis killed a guy the other night
shot him four times with a .357 Magnum
and it didn’t even surprise me
he was always so uptight and tough
too tough for the clientele at the Salamandra
drove them away
shooed off the poets
wouldn’t pay them for reading
or even give them a drink. . .
The whole issue is great. Check it out.
