Michael Earl Craig, (not a cowboy) poet and farrier

"The book provides many poems that are worth sharing with non-poets, not only because the lines are enjoyable, but also because the candor and straightforward nature of the work dispels the myth that poetry is abstract and inaccessible."— Front Porch

Thin Kimono continues Michael Earl Craig's singular breed of brilliant absurdist poetry, utterly and masterfully slanting the realities of daily existence.

This week TWQ producer Chérie Newman talks with Michael Earl Craig ("Earl") about different types of poetry (lyric, narrative, prose... ) and his writing process. He also reads a few poems from Thin Kimono, and wonders why people keep making a certain comment, over and over again, after his readings.

Find out more about Michael Earl Craig and listen to the program, on the radio or online.
