A comment on the page for my half of this reading by poet John Burgess: Julene Tripp Weaver isn’t afraid to look AIDS in the face. She’s a compassionate caregiver with a knack for capturing an unblinking look at final days and aftermaths. Hers is a direct and important poetry for our Age.

 

 

A Dream in the CloudsA Dream in the Clouds: A politically-neutral collection of poetry, prose, and art inspired by the 2008 United States Presidential Election

features my poem “Over Here, Over There,” first published in Drash Northwest Mosaic. My poem was inspired by poet Jayson Iwen. His work and essay on Zajal was published in the same journal of Knock as a poem of mine—read his interview. Intrigued with the 12th Century Arabic folk song tradition Zajal, an interactive call and response form usually with music, I wrote my poem using this form loosely as a guide. The poem, in columns, can be read separately and as one. I read “Over Here, Over There” as three poems, each individual column, then across.
