Joseph O’Brien

Author of Groundwork, forthcoming from Korrektiv Press, Mr. O’Brien has had his poems miraculously appearing in Chronicles, Dappled Things,  San Diego Readerand The Kickapoo Free Press; on the outhouse walls belonging to certain Wisconsin acreage (as part of a distributivist soil reclamation project); and most impressivly — like the image  of a  flash of lightning rippling along the intricately interchanging spirals and spokes of a spider’s web depicted artfully in a colorful tattoo between the dimples at the small of a beautiful woman’s back — in Mr. Lickona’s psyche.
