Campfire poems

Confirmation, 06/11/22

In the hierarchy of


life, death

love, loss

nothing to a poet

is as evocative of


eternal truth

as northern rain

falling fiercely

on meager roof

– Mark L. Lucker

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
