New Poetry

Friends, please stop by Bareback Press and take a look at Mike Algera’s collection, Old Gods For New. His website is www.mikealgera.com. I mention his poems because he doesn’t strike me as a poet who fears the manipulation of form nor the rejection of convention. You simply have to invest in the storytelling nature of his work. Because he doesn’t gift the reader with stuffy, workshop readability, the reader gets something better: investment. And connection.┬áCheck him out.

“Touching her dying father’s hand was like seeing Christ at┬áHis door, sandals off.”

–Mike Algera
