Thirteen Jesuses

I received my copy this week of Garth Madsen’s latest collection, Thirteen Jesuses, published by Picaro Press.  Garth is the self-appointed poet laureate of Frankston and this collection is a series of 55 short prose poems, almost all opening with the lines, ‘I have learned…’ and full of Madsen’s typical mix of humor, angst, social commentary and personal philosophy. It’s a great little collection.  I’ll blog the cover when I get access to a scanner; meanwhile, here’s a picture I took of Garth earlier this year when he spoke at the Cube 37 Symposium in Frankston which I blogged about back THEN.
