Having turned 69 in “09,” Bloomington poet Roger Pfingston says he’s not looking forward to his 70th, but considering his options — turning 70 is better than not — assuming good health, a loving wife, at least a modest income, and of course, the continuing pleasure of writing poems.

Pfingston, a retired teacher of English and photography, has published several chapbooks, including Singing in the Garden (Parallel Press).  And his work has appears in various journals and anthologies, including online at the Innisfree Poetry Journal, the Tipton Poetry Journal, Lunarosity, Plum Ruby Review, and Mannequin Envy.

On this edition of The Poets Weave, he reads his poems “Happy Birthday To Me,” “Feeding Swallows,” “Grady’s Neglect,” “The Man Next Door,” and “My Mother’s Purse.”
