Armageddon Blues

I am happy to see my poem, Armageddon Blues, in the winter issue of Salamander.   The poem is full of irony and tenderness for the challenges of everyday life in times of siege. The unthinkable seems to suck all the energy out of the room.  I see certain personal hallmarks: I play with dialog and dialectic, two voices, two positions in this extended address (which is one sentence).  I explore a subject of continuing fascination: the ways that art speaks, with fragility but force, to macro political forces.  And in order to insure human values along with survival, the necessity to guarding one’s own place of beauty and goodness.
