In today’s day and age you might think a saying like that was attributed to “45” or Putin. In my Father’s day he might have imagined it was Jack Benny or Groucho Marx. When I was growing up I could easily have credited Casey Stengel or Yogi Berra.

I have realized for a long time that I have a triangle foundation. The three sides are creativity,  nature and people/relationships. It is a fluid triangle, with the length of each side varying in time. These poems all fall under the people/relationship side of my triangle. Thus YOU for a title. Yo...

The deaths of parents with whom we’ve stayed close becomes a defining change, a chasm we somehow cross, in our lives.

Gene Grabiner's chapbook is simply wonderful: "simply," because he pares the poems to their cores, and "wonderful," because, reading it, we see all the beauty he shows us. His choice of words is superb. In "Tie-Offs," we read this brilliantly assonant phrase: "creosote-soaked pole." And consider thi...

A review from England, in "The Supplement", of John Roche's Joe Poems books.

Review by Neal Wilgus.

The Joe Poems:The Continuing Saga of Joe The Poet By John Roche 2012, pb, 58pp FootHills Publishing, PO Box 68, Kanona, NY 14856, USA

Mo’ Joe: The Anthology – The Continuing Saga of Joe The Poet, Vol. 2 Edited by John Roche 2014, pb, 221pp, $16 Beatlick Press, 45 Garden Park Circle NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107, USA

Forget Little Willie (if you can) – here’s a new kiddo to play with, a folk hero somewhat in the footsteps of Paul Bunyan, John Henry or Pecos Bill. It’s Joe the Poet!

John Roche, who should know, writes that the original Joe poem appeared in Rootdrinker no. 17 in 2009. After that, Joe showed up in a variety of small press ‘zines and resulted in the 38 poems collected in The Joe Poems. The rules of Joe’s universe are loose, as is appropriate for a mythological figure – Joe can be any man, woman, child, or whatever with no attempt at consistency. In theory, Joe poems are no more than 10 lines/100 words, as suggested by Rootdrinker editor Alan Casline, and spelled out in the original volume.

But, somehow, Joe broke loose and spread uncontrollably, adopted and adapted to a seeming endless series – Joe (or, Jo, Josephine, Jo-y, etc) doing his/her thing down through history and all over the map! The result is Mo’ Joe: The Anthology, which stars Joe in 202 poems by 121 poets (with design by Roche and Jules Nyquist and several fine photos). Not all these free spirits conform to the ten-line rule and who cares how many words get splashed around? Joe must have his way.

Probably the best-known contributors in Mo’ Joe are Lyn Lifshin, Margaret Randall, and beat bard, d. winans, but there are plenty of fine poets here, many from New Mexico, including Pamela Hirst, who founded Beatlick Press in memory of Beatlick Joe Speer. Quite a few of these poets live and teach in Rochester, New York, while others are scattered far and wide. Most are authors of books of poetry, many from FootHills Publishing, including FootHills founder, Michael Czarnecki.

The longest poem in Mo’ Joe is a prose poem by Leah Zazulyer, which runs two full pages, a rambling memoir paying homage to Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel, my favourite artist. Also of note is the Joe poem, Restoration by Herb Kauderer, which was nominated for the Dwarf Stars Awards for 2015. And, you’ll find Joe in all kinds of crazy and fantastic places, more than you can imagine, I imagine.

So, forget the superheroes, if you will, here comes the mythic Joe the Poet. I think you’ll be seeing more of him – he gets around! Highly recommended.

Hello Foothills. You all are awesome. I sent an email but it bounced back. I need more copies of my book which was printed in 2008. Is this possible?
