Poet Interview – Bartholomew Barker

Susi Bocks of the I Write Her blog has posted an interview we did to promote her anthology, The Sound of Brilliance: The Short of It, which features a couple of my poems. We talk about stripclubs, Ohio, trauma and The Truth for about half an hour then I read a poem.

I Write Her

Grab a beverage of your choice and come spend some time with Bartholomew and Susi! You’ll learn more about the anthology and get to know Bartholomew a little better too.

    The truth hurts
    Like long time curses
    So, empty the stones from old purses
    And deflate the tyres on tomorow’s hearse …

    Today I saw her there
    I knew the truth
    I knew she was there
