Poetry Posts Feature Taos Writer Kate O’Neill

Look for all ten on the campus of Santa Fe Community College.

Courtyard C is always a lovely spot

A community garden has grown up around one of the posts on the Fitness Center trail. How serendipitous to post Kate’s poem “Seeds” there!

To the west of the bookstore in a bit of wild earth you can find two posts as well

Rest within a bone–
Such might be a way

Poetry Posts: Looking for Poets, Artists, Curators

There are 10 poetry posts on Santa Fe Community College’s campus.


Since I’ve retired, no one is maintaining them, so I think I’ll just continue to as a community project for the time being. But I need help!

I’m looking for:

a poet with ten poems
an editor who wants to create a suite of ten poems
an artist, collagist, collaborative group to create 10 pages of images plus poetry

Each post houses a simple standard piece of paper


I’m going to put out a call in my on-line class and to the staff of Santa Fe Literary Review.
A selection from an e-zine would work. Each poem shoud be no more than one page.

Write me at msagan1035@aol.com to participate

You can mail me hard copy or a pdf would work too. It’s fun, and there’s audience. I’ll install the work. Interested?

Poetry Month #16: Safety Net Aphorisms

Artist Suzanne Vilmain created a clay circus in a suitcase. This served as an inspiration for the Fiction class at SFCC, in which each student wrote a 1-line aphorism on the themes of “inside/outside” and “safety net.” Below are some images of the combinations:




The aphorisms are also now posted in the ten poetry posts on campus. Check them out!





Albuquerque Poetry Post

There is a lovely poetry post in Albuquerque.


The curators say: We’ve had the pole up for about 3 years; when we first put it up it was just plastic sleeves for the poems and a simple sign- since then we’ve had a metal artist we know make us a steel sign and steel frames for the poems. We know lots of folks who make sure their regular neighborhood walk passes the pole, and we’ve even had a school field trip come to the pole, and all the kids left their own poems behind for us to post! Our block also has a little library and a magazine exchange. Thanks for the interest!
