Neuron Mirror

This book raises money to fight pancreatic cancer, the cancer that killed my mother and many poet friends. See our dedication and pages on those we remember and celebrate. We think this fight is a worthy cause and we hope you see the worthiness of our cause.

Michael and I have known each other over twenty years. We have read together in different bookstores, galleries, and museums. We have also worked together in the East End Poetry Workshop. We each have publication credits and we each did a small poetry book in the past, but this is our first publishing venture together.

Our underlying connection is empathy for others and for the creatures of the natural world in which we live. We think you will find poems to trigger your neurons of empathy the mirror neurons that become our humanity.
