John Berryman Still Loves Us When We Wish We Were Dead

High, West, and Crooked

cross-posted from Fried Chicken and Coffee That's how I feel right now after trying to manage my time in the last few days since I found out my chapbook  Broke  was going to be published (and quickly) by Didi Menendez and MiPoesias, the same folks that brought you  Redneck Poems.  That great news, combined with the home situation in which my wife is working ever more hours as the B&N gears up for Christmas, and the kids needing what kids need, like, uh, food, homework, interesting things to play with, and not so much TV, has given me a pain I'm just now wending my way out of. Having two books to promote at the same time is not ideal, but I'm not bitching, either. I am capital G grateful to Didi Menendez for seeing fit to pub this chapbook. And in keeping with this, here are all the links for purchase and/or download. Here's how you can order or download Broke: To get a print edition of  Broke , please see

Appalachian Prison Book Project

The Appalachian Prison Book Project , a program that aims to rehabilitate inmates by giving them free books to read, has lost their funding and is looking for book donations.  The West Virginia University Department of English  is accepting donation on the program’s behalf. The most sought after books from the program are dictionaries, auto repair manuals, psychology textbooks and fiction. And for security purposes, all donations must be paperback. Please give to this good cause . Thanks to Kerrie Kemperman for bringing it to my attention.
