It’s good to see her high-powered, hard-edged poems collected in book form.

Urban Haiku and More is Here!

For anyone who knows Patricia Carragon, this newest collection of short, mixed-media poems will surely delight — if not surprise. From the riotously humorous to the deeply poignant, Patricia covers the emotional terrain with her witty personality unfurled and a display of craft that, like a dancer, seems so effortless. If you love contemporary short verse, you’ll certainly savor these confections by a poet who is a spirited observer of the world around her and within her. –Brenda J. Gannam, Member, Haiku Society of America

Patricia Carragon hits the haiku right on the head – making it as much her form as the masters’ – Funny and deadly accurate – they stop you in your tracks – It’s no accident that she starts off with a Kerouac and Bashô haiku – She frees up the territory – Bashô’s frogs are replaced by bedbugs – Kerouac’s drugs are replaced by Viagra – very feminine with no holds barred – very astute and timely – a great read – guaranteed to free up your notions of what a haiku can’t or can do. –Hal Sirowitz – author of Father Said

    Dear Patricia,

    I found your page through facebook via Poets that I know. I am a poet also, a minimalist. I am also a painter who writes on paintings. I am currently working on a series of paintings of bath plug holes from around the world. I am painting the bath plug hole and then writing/painting on the canvas the place of origin. I am desperately looking for someone in New York who could send me an image of a bath plug hole from New York. Could you help me? Or do you know someone who could help? I am gathering images without traveling and so far have plug holes from Odessa, Vancouver, many European places, Cape Town, Athens and several arriving from other cities. It is a strange request I know. I will have a show and acknowledge the contributors. If you can help let me know and I would be greatly appreciative. I live in Tasmania Australia by the way. Thank you for listening. Yours Mande

    • Wish i could help you Mande, but maybe you could request this on Facebook? I don’t have a bath plug. If I did, I would have taken a picture of it and sent it to you. So sorry.

  5. Hi, I wanted to thank you for the follow! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers ;-)
    Keep up the good work.
