“I think poems are pieces of talk, savored and sustained. I would call them lucky talk.”
Roger Pfingston’s poems have appeared in magazines, books, and anthologies over a period of fifty years. A recipient of a poetry fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, he has poems in And Know This Place: Poetry of Indiana, published by the Indiana Historical Society Press. His latest chapbook is A Day Marked for Telling, available from Finishing Line Press.
