What am I doing? I’m trying to sell the books of poetry I have written that have been published and, friends, it is easy to buy the books – especially VOICE OVER, published last March. Go to www.michaelpoage.com and click “Buy Books.” You and Paypal do the rest. Poetry is not a big seller in the U.S. but you can change that, at least slightly, but slightly is better than nothing. And spread the word. I am a GOODREADS author so go to www.goodreads.com, become a member and join me in “conversations” about my work and that of other writers. “The central fact of my life,” Borges wrote, “has been the existence of words and the possibility of weaving those words into poetry.” Thank you.
What are you reading? I have just finished reading Mark Doty’s, FIRE TO FIRE. Great book. Now reading Gish Jen’s, TIGER WRITER, print version of the Massey lectures she gave last year at Harvard. Really enjoying the book. She is an amazing writer, intellectual, and humorist.
