Lasting Notes by James Marvelle

New release from Cholla Needles! Lasting Notes by James Marvelle 

"James Marvelle has been blasting poetry through pens into notebooks since his birth in 1949. He kept delicate track of every life he encountered between here and there with detail, humor, pathos, and whatever else flew freely. James was taught the joy of nursery rhymes from his earliest moments, and continues that childhood joy by sharing the songs he writes with everyone."
