Well Facebook annoyed the hell out of me..  it kept saying error .. try posting later… to heck with that!!!

I have written this up four times now and if my computer crashes a fifth time  I will give up. I need a new processor fan..or maybe a new computer period. Agrivating.

Anyway.. here it is :your top ten poets of the week…

1. Sean Reddan – Product


This hit me …. and consumerism is part of the problem.. however malls create jobs so it is a huge debacle of a debate. I like stores that give back.. my favorite thrift stores give their proceeds to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters and I try to teach my kids that it is important as a society that we give back when we can…

2. Jason Hardung – Poet Fucker


Yup … Jason I relate to this… so much.

3. Michael Grover- Counter Revolutionary Poems #1 : Published by Unadorned Press

4. MJ Taylor; Humanity


not enough is said about MJ.. because of him I believe in reincarnation.. there is no way he is 18 toooo wise for his years….Happy birthday man…

5. Scott Wannberg : M.J. Soiree 2 Step Yipppeeee….for M.J.Taylor’s birthday


read this on Voices to Contend With Friday night… scott’s pieces are all unique ; rhythmic challenging to read.. and if you listen you can almost hear Levon Helm in the distance..

6. Anne McWilliams- Unless Im the Nurse


if you haven’t read her… what are you waiting for???

7. Annie Perconti;; The Patriarch 


heard her on Voices to Contend With  Friday night… if you have never heard/ read her.. listen to archives… glad she called in.. excellent poet..

Her chapbook is on my list of must haves… her work is always ones i read and reread…

9.April Michelle Bratten; The Blood Memory


everything she writes blows me away..

10. Rebecca Clark Gober;  California Dreamin


You need to write more Rebecca… there is more than being a mom, working an important job, there is what makes us tick.. and I have been reading you since 2007.. don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and write… excellent.
