The Low Country Shvitz by Rick Lupert

Rick Lupert’s 27th poetry collection and latest humorous travelogue written in Savannah, Georgia (where ghosts inhabit the poems), Charleston, South Carolina (where the lady who gives out cookies is among the nicest people you’ll ever meet), Asheville, North Carolina (the east coast’s contribution to “weird” cities), and Charlotte, North Carolina, where ducks and frogs roam the streets without a single care. Join Rick and his mostly willing travel companion Addie as they explore all there is to do, see, and eat in the south. You’ll eat biscuits. You’ll be in the spot where the Civil War started. You’ll wander through “Chicken Alley.” Stow away on this hilarious, poetic vacation. It’s much cheaper than buying plane tickets.

Pinnacles of Hope, Charlie Brice, Impspired Press, 2022.

Pinnacles of Hope is a chronicle of life experience ranging from the joys of hippie culture to the challenges of illness and mortality. Whether he’s giving a craft talk on poetry or imagining himself as Charles the Bald, Charles Brice covers all the bases. With this clever wit and word play, he discovers “…the curious quiet that makes birds sing.” And in his unique way, Brice shares his truth: “…the palpable sense/that we…broken ones are still here.”

Offertories: Exclamations and Disequilibirums by Barbara Simmons

Offertories: Exclamations and Disequilibirums by Barbara Simmons, (Friesen Press, April 2022
Available on Amazon and Friesen Press. Barbara’s website:

This collection of free-verse poetry travels, along with the author, across her lifetime, from high school through college and graduate school, past marriage, divorce, and the death of a parent, deep into raising children, always finding a new path of understanding, deeply thinking about her inner and external worlds.  There is an element of “exclaiming” in these offertories, an understanding that even imbalance can bring about a new equilibrium in one’s life.  Simmons’ poetry moves through the terrain of mythology, landscapes, train rides, seasons, loss, hope, finally understanding how one comes to see one’s life as utterances that help one regain one’s balance in life’s journey.

The Death of The American Dream: An Obituary on a Failed & Doomed World. . .

“A memoir that presents a philosophy of nihilism. A satire on the irony of life. A dark night of nothingness. A brutal bashing of society. A debate on the value of suicide. A self help guide for the path to destruction. An obituary on a failed and doomed world. A revelation of personal apocalypse. THE MOURNING HOUR presents the masterpiece poetic rants of Frogg Corpse, a mad genius standing on the lunatic fringe of a world gone wrong. Read at your own damn risk!”
—Ron Whitehead, U.S. National Beat Poet Laureate

ALL POETRY by Paulo Leminski

ALL POETRY by Paulo Leminski (2022) presents the master’s multi-faceted poems of contrast: rigor v. emotion, erudition v. lightness, avant-garde v. convention, formal construction v. colloquialism. From West to East, he embodied a frontier of both “cultured” and “pop,” super-concentrated and quotidian material. Existential / love lyric, haiku, visual effects, “joke poem,” meta-poetics, slogans, songs, “it’s all good.” All Poetry is a true adventure—for the intellect and the senses.  Find the book at Amazon books!
