John Beer is the author of the poetry collection The Waste Land and Other Poems (Canarium Books) and the chapbook Lucinda (Spork Press). Associative and imaginative, his work has been compared to that of John Ashbery. He is a theater columnist for Time Out Chicago and teaches at Portland State University.
Joe Hall is a devout poet. He is devoted to trailer parks, the drafty inner spaces of domesticity where we cry out for our lady help. He finds god, saints, saviors, in spiders in a woodpile. For Hall, poetry cannot hold anything if it doesn’t break.
Beer available for a small suggested donation.
