Birders have a life list.  So do fans of good writing.  Last week, I added Michael Delp to mine.

This Michigan poet, author, warrior with words and fly fisherman read from his new poetry collection, Lying in the River’s Dark Bed, at an event benefiting my employer FLOW.  He was funny, charming and entertaining — but most important, he was provocative.  Pick up his book and read “The Mad Angler Speaks Truth to Politicians.”

The man is an original, and a lyrical writer.
