Poem posted: Prairie Wolf Press Review

TC BoyleI’m thrilled that the editors at Prairie Wolf Press Review have included one of my poems in their new online edition.

The poem, “T. C. Boyle might have been a biologist,” was inspired by an evening spent listening to Boyle read one of his stories and talk about his work.  The opening line is partly quoted from Boyle himself.  The rest of the poem comes from being familiar with his work — which teems with creatures of all kinds.

garden-spider-crawling-on-web_1200x1800Boyle told us he gets nearly all of his ideas for his stories and novels from items in the news, but that he is drawn to tales that explore humans’ encounters with elements of nature.  My poem imagines writers like Boyle huddled over their laptops, bringing their creations to life.


  1. I love your poems and continue to be amazed with your insight and ability to express your thoughts and ideas this way. Love you always-Jo

  2. Thank you for being so attentive to my writing, Jo — It makes me happy knowing you enjoy it! Love you!
