STEPPING OUTSIDE — Frank Parker

 

STEPPING OUTSIDE-best

This is my last post as guest editor of TRUCK for the month of June 2011. My thanks to Halvard Johnson for entrusting me with his mighty rig and my gratitude to those who have followed along. I hope you have enjoyed meeting some terrific poets and their work in a different format.

Frank Parker is the author of three books of poetry, Heart Shaped Blossoms: 1993-2007, zig-zag journeys (2009), and Win Po: a work in progress (2011), all from his Obscure Press. He edits the online journal Frank's Home: An Active Anthology of Verse and publishes widely on the web. He has an installation of 33 broadsides online in the current issue of Big Bridge. He’s on the Board of Directors of POG, a collective of literary and visual artists in Tucson, AZ, and is the sound technician for POG and Chax Press readings. Frank maintains the web site POG Sound, an audio archive of POG and Chax Press readings. He can be found on Facebook too. He loves his little adobe casita in Barrio Viejo, feeds sparrows, Gila Woodpeckers who nest in the Chinaberry Tree, and marvels at a Cooper’s Hawk occasionally splashing in the birdbath. Oh, you should hear the Gila Woodpeckers’ screech!
