Mark S. Weber


I wonder if
dogs wonder why we pee in
their drinking water
  rising like sparks
from the cornfield at dusk
Dreamed they shot the moon
with pink dye #14
to study something
  One finger poised like
the foot of an egret
before it hits the O

Mark S. Weber was born in Detroit, Michigan, but raised in the Upper Peninsula, Michigan, which would account for his love of wild places. He has traveled extensively through the United States, Canada and Alaska, where he has a shack that serves nicely as a home for part of the year. The warm part.

Weber is a poet and fiction author with one novel written, one in progress and a suitcase full of poetry that goes with him everywhere. He currently lives in northern Michigan.
