Tuesday Poem and Cher
Tuesday Poem this week hosts US poet Dorinne Laux who writes poems about people like Cher and Mick Jagger, as well as about waitressing in the 60’s, about old boyfriends, about being a strong woman growing up in the 60's, about surviving in the millennium, and working through the existential issues that plague us all.
Editor this week, Philadelphian poet Eileen Moeller, says 'Laux is a poet beloved to many of us in the U.S., and one of our most generous, most effective teachers.'
After reading Laux' poems: Cher and Dark Charms check out the sidebar of Tuesday Poem for 30 Tuesday Poets and the poems they've posted, by themselves or others they admire. You'll find all sorts from DH Lawrence to newcomer Helen Lehndorf. Give it a go!
