A collection of poetry by Joseph Nichols
5.5″ x 8.5″
Joseph Allen Nichols is a middle-aged father, trapped in the dreams of a lost boy, whose light is driven forward by a lengthening shadow. He’s worked for alphabet agencies, the United States Navy, a couple journals, a state agency, a few gas stations, as a spiritual medium, and too many years (too many years ago) at a number of Krogers and Fazoli’s. He is currently an officiant and DJ with A to Z Productions and relishes his little part in telling love stories.
He’s a graduate of the University of Kentucky and EKU’s MFA writing program with The Bluegrass Writers Studio. He’s won a couple awards, been in a couple shows, yada yada, but all that truly matters is what follows: His body currently calls the arts community in Lexington, KY, home, but his mind resides in and alongside any number of cities and countries (and the people he was blessed to meet in each one) he’s flown (and known) along the way.
His family (his sons, Isaac and Jonathan; his tiny dog, Emily; his veritable-panther/familiar, Cookie; and a few others) are the anchors that keep him smiling and somewhere near a semblance of what someone was once heard calling the real world.
