Poetry Reading with Kevin Miller

Vanish is the winner of the 2020 Wandering Aengus Book Award and Kevin Miller's fourth book of poetry. WAP Poetry Editor Tina Schumann says of the poems, "Kevin Miller’s collection Vanish exists in the quiet certitude of lives lived moment to moment, hour by hour and generation to generation. These poems illustrate that it is the varied stuff of this life that makes us whole—farmhouses, sparrows and mackerel, smoke from a cigarette, candles in a window, a question asked over dinner—illuminating each small gesture and ache as they vanish into time, but permeate the living and the land they occupy."

 

Kevin Miller's Spring Meditation is a tribute to baseball in poetry--the majors, the minors, the players, the coaches. It's also a poetic memoir of a life lived with baseball in the foreground.

 

A Picture of Eudora Welty

This is the March that follows no winter.

Already mosquitoes own left field.

A new kid wants to pitch but not attend class.

A legend from Spokane signs for thirty-one million.

Welty knows about cheap seats;

she knows a story will save our lives.

Stories keep us young.

Give me the right woman in a porch rocker

over any experienced bull pen.
