Poetry Editor Charlie Bondhus reflects on and shares some of our finest moments from 2013.
Dear Good Men Project Readers:
I was brought on to helm this poetry section in mid-November and, as of this writing, we have published 11 poems and received 7000 page views! A very healthy start! Thank you so much for your commitment to poetry and to The Good Men Project. I look forward to the continued growth of this section in 2014 as I continue my work of bringing you the best poetry I can find! Please keep reading and, if you’re a poet yourself, do consider reviewing our guidelines and submitting! Also, don’t forget to share the work we publish with your friends.
In the meantime, please visit the links below to enjoy (or re-enjoy) some of the most popular poems we published in 2013.
All the best to you in the new year!
The Good Men Project
In “Stoneroller in the Hiawassee,” Christopher Martin writes on a quiet, lovely moment with his son.
In “Orange,” retired soldier Dwight Gray presents a haunting meditation on youth, Halloween, and gun culture.
In “The Naked Kiss,” John Trigonis gives us both darkness and light; a man, a woman, a motel room.
In “Father,” Gary Bouchard’s breathtaking tribute to his veteran father, rescue comes from unexpected hands.
In “boy astride a spooked horse,” Sean Patrick Mulroy explores a bestial side of men’s nature.
