Check out my recent contributor spotlight at Midwestern Gothic:
The rural Midwest (farming) probably influences my work the most. I think that as poets, we all write about similar issues and experiences. It’s the landscape that distinguishes one from another. Most of my poems, no matter what the context, begin with a singular, textured, image. These images depend on the atmosphere around them. For instance, think of what humidity does to your hair… Or roosters.
