Poetry. Interrelated blocks of prose poems that weave through beautiful narratives--personal yet universal--layering lyric fictions over and under one another into the deeper truths about the earth, interpersonal relationships, and humanity, the language of heat, poverty, darkness and light, hunger, and the contemporary myths from which truth is found.
Christien Gholson is the author of the novel, A Fish Trapped Inside the Wind (Parthian, 2011) and a book of linked prose poems, ON THE SIDE OF THE CROW (Hanging Loose Press, 2006). He has been many shapes before he attained congenial form: bookseller, union organizer, a black feather in a blue dumpster, farmhand, editor, a fish falling from the sky, and factory worker. He attended both Naropa University and the University of California at Davis. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.Author City: SANTA FE, NM USA
