Poems on Pyrokinection

Big ShipsThree of my poems have just gone live at Pyrokinection, an online publication from Kind of a Hurricane Press editor and poet A.J. Huffman.

 

 

 

They are “big ships” … “moving through sad middles of nowhere” … and … “Vancouver B.C.”

Mark Niehus – Poet & Artist

I’ve just written up a bio for my good friend and great poet Mark Niehus. He’s been doing some exciting things with art and words recently and has a new book due to be released soon. Read all about it and check out his website below . . .

Mark Niehus is a poet who anchors words on the exploration of self, but not just his own. “We are all born / and thrown against this world,” declares the opening poem of his first book. “And everything is  normal to someone, / something you hate / someone loves. / Something you disbelieve / someone would die for. / The ugly is beautiful, / the feared are faithful / and nothing is something / to someone / somewhere.” Conversation and discovery are the basis of Mark’s approach to experience in art, poetry and life; moving at the heart of things with a thought, an image; the right question asked, in something like the right way, over drinks at that bar you know.
