Today at my blog, I am showcasing Poet David S. Pointer
I started out as a political/social justice poet. My first poetry publication in 1990 in "Pleiades" journal was a horror poem though. When I took the surgery technology program and we dealt with human anatomy, I couldn't hold back on the horror and Sci-fi genre pieces any longer.
Most of David’s poetry I have had the pleasure to read, including them in my own anthologies, and posting them here at this very blog, are speculative in subject matter. Elsewhere, I have called his poems whirlwinds, driving you deliriously down to the end, taking in the overall effect, and then you go right back to the beginning to savor the Devil in his details.
I decided to go with Spanish translations because screaming and bleeding is a complex diverse issue with a changing American readership.
