The Red Wheelbarrow 11 is launching at GainVille Café on Friday, September 28, 2018, an event hosted by Mark Fogarty. Mark hosts the GainVille Cafe reading series and is one of The Red Wheelbarrow’ three managing editors.

The feature at both launches is all the poets we are publishing. As your work is in The Red Wheelbarrow # 11, we would be delighted if you join us and read from your poems that we’ve published.

Each year’s Red Wheelbarrow spotlights and presents an in-depth look at the poetry of one of our community’s members. We are very excited and happy to announce that The Red Wheelbarrow # 11’s featured poet is Jim Klein. It is a delight and a true honor to showcase Jim’s work this year. Jim is a true poetry hero, the father of our Red Wheelbarrow community, and a master poet at the top of his game.

An $9 cover includes coffee/tea, dessert.

A Boat on an Ocean

December 30, 2009

A boat on an ocean,
something a Japanese might like.
It could build.
Serenity with complementry peril.
Because you long for me,
I’ll never sell you short.
Tomorow will be a happy day.
What a sendoff we’ll give it.
I know it’s easy to think
this is just a small part
of a dolorouus story,
but to think so
is a dog-brained istake.
Take hold, lover.
Do whatver comes to you.
It will be serene and bright.
Little if anything will ever
break up this happy time.
