"Hard Labor is a perfect collaboration between two hard working poets, a towering testimony of iconoclastic, everyday, every-man poetry. It reminds me why I started Chiron Review."---From Chiron Review Publisher Michael Hathaway

MY POEMS NOW BEING TAUGHT IN U.S. HIGH SCHOOLS
 

I've been informed in recent months that my labor poems are now being taught in several U.S. High Schools, by Steve Henn in Warsaw (Indiana), by Nathan Graziano in Manchester (New Hampshire), etc. I've included one notification below:

Steve Henn

Read and wrote about and talked about two poems in English 12 CP today, one by Linda McCarriston and one by Don Winter. Kids were interested. There is yet hope for middle America.

one life to another

“stick the hook there,”
grandpa said, rolling
the worm like a booger
in his gun-shell
fingers. i stabbed it
in the wrong places.
i caught one

fish all day.
grandpa drove it home,
a wet sock
in a basket.
it puckered & spit

in the frying pan.
snagged on rusted
nails, bass heads
yawned, mouths big enough
to swallow a thermos
of whiskey
in one gulp.

"I just wanted to fill you in on where I stand as a student. When I first started at Ivy Tech I rushed through a lot of work. I thought I knew it all. When I took the Compass Test and got 03 in writing I didn’t care because I didn’t want to do it. After having you as a teacher in the summer I noticed I was becoming more active in the class room, doing my homework and turning it in on time. Not missing a day of class. I was proud of myself. You inspired me to do this. After I left out of your class room and learned so much from you I retook my compass test in writing. I passed it with a 72.  I am now in English 093, just having been at 03 and gone to 72. You never gave up on me. THANK YOU. Hayley Gard. Please feel free to share this with your next set of students. Oh and you should teach English 093."
