Jerry Friedman

Poetry and stuff

I live in Española, New Mexico, and teach physics at Santa Fe Community College.  Here's the page about me at SFCC.  The picture at that page should probably be updated.

My full name is Gerald Friedman, and that's what I've mostly used for poetry and physics.

You can reach me at jerry_friedman@yahoo.com.

Poetry


If the title is linked, it goes to a page here, and the poem may have been slightly revised since print publication.  If the publication is linked, the link goes to the poem or poems at the publication.

Yes, I took about 20 years off from submitting poetry to magazines.

You can hear me reading some of my poems on this episode of the wonderful Eat the Storms podcast.

"Woods Outside Cleveland, Ohio"

Bluepepper Review, May 9, 2021
I was confused about Native peoples when I wrote this one.  The Assistaeronon lived near the western end of Lake Erie.  The people who lived near what is now Cleveland until about 1640 are known only from archeology; their artifacts are called the Whittlesey tradition after the first archeologist to find them.  For now change "the Assistaeronon, the Fire Nation" to "the 'Whittlesey' people".
