Noon Edition

Time Sensitive Materials

Eric Rensberger

I love the challenge of short forms. In long poems, the reader is content to wait for something to happen. In short ones, something must happen now.

Eric Rensberger spent his early years in northern Indiana. Since 1979, he has been a somewhat unpredictable fixture of the Bloomington poetry scene. He has been published in numerous journals and anthologies, and his collected works may be found at

On this edition of the Poets Weave, Eric reads a group of short poems:

"Of You"

"Time Sensitive Materials"


"History Defined"

"Lazarus Laughs"

"Two Sites Seem Saddest"




"The Four Directions"
