Poetry. The latest collection from prolific poet, literary chronicler, and man on the scene, Neeli Cherkovski, pays homage to his aging and gone friends from the heyday of all their lives, contemplates upon his own dwindling days, celebrates each moment passing by, and attempts to come to grips with ultimate ends. Neeli Cherkovski was born a poet and through hard, lifelong work, turned himself into a constant maker. These poems result from a close alignment between fingers, pencil, paper, and brain.
Neeli Cherkovski was born in Santa Monica, CA. He attended California State University, Los Angeles and Hebrew Union College. His poetry and prose has been published in many languages and he often reads his writing in Europe and Mexico. Author of over thirty books of poetry, his most recent books include, ELEGY FOR MY BEAT GENERATION (Lithic Press, 2018), COOLIDGE & CHERKOVSKI: IN CONVERSATION (Lithic Press, 2020), HANG ON TO THE YANGTZE RIVER (Lithic Press, 2020), and a Bicentennial edition of Bukowski: A Life. He lives in San Francisco with Jesse Cabrera.Author City: SAN FRANCISCO, CA USA
