Volume 2 of Buk 100 Features “Ode to a New Black Ball-Point Pen”

Airmail from Germany!

I am honored to see a poem and a photograph of mine published in Buk 100: Notes for a Dirty Old Birthday!  Like the first volume of Buk 100, Newington Blue Press created this second limited edition chapbook to honor what would have been legendary poet Charles Bukowski’s 100th birthday.  (You can order your copy right here.)

The short poem is entitled “Ode to a New Black Ball-Point Pen” and the photo appears just below it.  (I think my fellow Roanokers will recognize Shaffer’s Crossing Norfolk Southern Railway Bridge.)

Thanks again to Matthias Krueger for selecting my work for this superb recognition of Bukowski’s legacy!
