Planet Poet – Words in Space – NEW PODCAST!  LISTEN to my September l, 2020 conversation with poets Cheryl A. Rice and Guy Reed, on their collaborative chapbook, Until The Words Came, published by Post Traumatic Press in 2019 and their new full collections - Cheryl’s Love’s Compass (2019: Kung Fu Treachery Press, an imprint of  Spartan Press), and Guy Reed’s Second Innocence, published this year by Luchador Press, also an imprint of Spartan Press.   

“It’s not unusual for poets to tackle the subject of craft or the ghosts and mentors
who inspired their path.  What sets Cheryl A. Rice & Guy Reed’s Until The Words
Came apart from so many collections is a thoughtful conviction, a strength of
heart that makes their words more than just raw emotion, or a polished sense of
poetics.  It is all of these things.  The late Richard Hugo once said, ‘Poetry is the
art of meaning what you say.’ Well, Rice and Reed mean every word, and their
work together offers a great sense of balance, in a world that sure could use some.”
            -- John Dorsey
