Mo' Joe

The Joe the Poet Anthology

Authored by John Roche
Edition: 1

Over a hundred poets contribute their imaginative interpretations to the growing legend of Joe the Poet, an elusive wandering bard first discovered in 2008 by editor John Roche, who won't let on where he first spied Joe, but he does have Joe's hat. Joe is a time-traveler, and also sometimes appears as Josephine or other incarnations. Some say Joe is the creator of all poems, and we're merely channeling Joe. The editor reserves judgment on this point of disputation.
