Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Two Poems in the Fall 2018 Issue of The Louisville Review

“Gutenberg’s Mirrors” and “Traffic Fiction” are both included in this wonderful journal, a publication of Spalding University. The amazing Greg Pape, former poet laureate of Montana, is poetry editor. The first poem was inspired by a fact my friend Devon Damonte told me about the famous Gutenberg not starting out to invent moveable type but rather mirrors to help pilgrims discover the power of saints’ relics. The one about traffic is a tribute to my mother, one of the kindest, most positive people who ever lived. She taught for 30+ years and saw the goodness in everyone.
