We are happy to announce that one of our writers, Colin Dodds, is publishing a new poetry anthology (Spokes of an Uneven Wheel) with Main Street Rag. We recently featured Colin’s poetry here.
About Spokes of an Uneven Wheel (Blurbs)
Spokes of an Uneven Wheel is a compact, ambitious work of poetry, due out from Main Street Rag Publishing this July.When I read Colin’s work, one of his own lines comes to mind:
“What persists / is glad amazement.” His work consistently delights with humor, inventiveness, a blessed dose of sarcasm and, yes, wisdom (despite his best intentions). We are all “born for that
other thing,” and this is that other thing. – Sharon Mesmer, author, Greetings from My Girlie Leisure Place
Spokes of an Uneven Wheel speaks for noses out of joint, joints out of town, and entire towns out of luck. And we are there too, among the overcast of characters. Like a singer songwriter who’s masterpiece depends on laryngitis and a guitar in the pawnshop, in total exile
from easy street. But exile from is also exile to, where despite the bleak economics, overbooked disappointment calendars, and a landscape of scapegoats, we prevail together.
– Brendan Lorber, author, If this is paradise why are we still
