If you missed my son on NPR this afternoon, you can hear a replay at Midnight. His poem will be at 12:09 AM, third poem in the set. Here’s the link: http://hppr.org/programs/genre/entertainment. Click on the “Listen Live” button in the upper left-hand side of your screen. The show is called Open Range and is part of the NPR network, broadcast out of South Dakota.
If you want to support the arts and a young poet’s dream you can purchase his first collection of poems from Amazon.com. Here’s the link: Oh Sleepur! Part of the fun of Marty’s poetry is the creative spelling of all of his titles. But his poems are filled with more than entertainment. There is questioning, doubt, hope, joy, challenge, inspiration and an arrow pointing to God. You will love them all.
Here’s some reader responses to his work:
“[Marty] uses words as a weapon, but as a shelter; as a threat, but as inspiration all at once.”
“there aren’t words to describe how deeply this resonates with me. All of [Marty’s] poetry is so honest and full of faith.”
