Mojo Mounts Behind Coltrane’s God

Jay Udall, editor of Gris-Gris, just accepted two poems which will be in my forthcoming Coltrane’s God, “Fiddle Fest Contestants” (about my itinerant fiddler grandfather) and “A Night in Tunisia,” about a wild night at the Mineshaft Tavern, in Madrid, Nuevo Mexico. Although Udall is thoroughly ensconced among Louisiana bayou poetry-voodoo (thus the name of his journal), he has NM roots (brother to our US Senator) and is familiar with the crazy music scene at the Mineshaft Tavern.
