Barbara Barg is a pre-Socratic / post postmodern /
pre-Apocalyptic poet and through those lenses explores writing,
music, performance, teaching, the ground, the sky, and life in
general. She was raised in Eastern Arkansas near the Mississippi
Delta and -- after many wanderings -- moved to New York City
where she became a several-times-recognized-in-a-coffee-shop
poet/musician on that throbbing scene. She moved to Chicago in
2008. She hopes to out-live fascism and imperialism, but doesn’t
let the demise of sane, political discourse destroy subjective
attainments of personal happiness and peace where appropriate.
In the works:
Brave New Squirrel (children's sci-fi book)
Spleen (a book of non-fiction, fiction, metaphysics,
science, anthropology, poetry)
Wondering how mutable we are how mutable sailing through internal landscapes and landfills, watching the 21st Century struggle to shed the 20th Century's skin. Trying to eat better, pay attention . . .

thank you, Timothy Lomas for those rooftop photos.
