Cancelled: David Meischen, Anyone's Son

This event has been cancelled.

David Meischen has been writing poetry and teaching the writing of poetry for thirty-five years. He is the author of Anyone’s Son, a debut poetry collection (3: A Taos Press, May 2020). His poems have appeared in  Assaracus, Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, Naugatuck River Review, San Pedro River Review, Southern Poetry Review, The Southern Review, Talking Writing, and other journals, as well as Two Southwests (Virtual Artists Collective, 2008), which features poets from the Southwest of China and the United States.

About Anyone's Son:
From the rural South Texas of the nineteen fifties to a desert mesa in New Mexico many years later, Anyone’s Son illuminates the moments of a life animated by the author’s yearning, at its root sexual, for the company of another man. In five sections, each one corresponding to a stage in the life delineated here, the author offers scenes from his childhood on a small farm, as well as moments of conflicted adolescence. He explores unmitigated sexual pleasure, sometimes fraught with anguish and shame. He remembers scenes from marriage and fatherhood, from the wreckage and rebuilding that came at midlife. And finally, glimpses from a second marriage, this time unconflicted, to a man, to the right man. At its heart, Anyone’s Son poses an implicit question: What is identity?
