UCM undergraduate and Writing Center consultant Aaron Henson has published two poems in 2015. The first, “Where Conversation Goes to Die” was featured in the independent e-journal, Straight Forward Poetry. You can purchase the volume as a digital download.
Henson’s second poem, “Molecules” appeared in the summer edition of MacGuffin.
Henson, who moved from writing lyrics for punk bands to writing poetry, finds inspiration in the work of Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, Frank O’ Hara, and Ezra Pound. According to Henson, Ginsberg and Burroughs pioneered a punk sensibility by showing that things are beautiful—by destroying those things.
