The July Issues of The Poetic Express


The Poetic Express continues.  I hope to be able to get some paper copies soon, for those of you who want to stick one on your refrigerator or to add it to your (physical) files.  Due to the pandemic, I’ll still continue to post each month’s issues here.  Eventually, they should also all end up at my digital archive in the Special Collections section of the University of Detroit Mercy library’s website.

The poem A Garden is in memory of my neighbor and old friend Jim Inglehart.  He loved the plants and he had a green thumb.

About a month ago, on July 19th, I started doing puppet shows, filming them and posting them online.  I’ll put a link to my youtube page here as well.  I’ve been doing puppets since 1988.  The rascals are as funny as ever, and I’m going to bring back some of the popular characters.  There have been five posted so far.  I’ll add one or two new ones every week.



These photos will enlarge if you click on them and hit the backspace to return to the post.


Here’s a separate version of the July 2020 SURREAL THEATRE:



New puppet performance from July and August.  There will be more soon.  I did the puppets, music, voices and staging.  The camera work is by Jennifer Gariepy.

Here are many back issues of The Poetic Express from 1985 to 2016:
