Read full description of the books Water Works:This small collection of 25 poems is a thoughtful, quick read but it bears more than one reading. The poems are deceptive and have more "meat on the bone" than they appear to have on first reading. They are a nice mixture of shorter and longer poems. Water and eroticism are woven together in several. But even the erotic takes on further meaning as you are led to take pleasure in the fluidity of word play used by the author.
My favorite poems were: Is Rain or Rhyme the Greater Crime?, Loveshot, Green Heart.
Read information about the authorJohn Burroughs, a.k.a. Jesus Crisis, was born in West Virginia, raised in Elyria, Ohio, and resides in Cleveland. He co-founded (with Dianne Borsenik) the infamous Lix and Kix Poetry Extravaganza and annual Snoetry: A Winter Wordfest. John is the author of The Eater of the Absurd [NightBallet Press, 2012], the collaborative book Oct Tongue -1 (with Mary Weems, John Swain, Steven Smith, Lady, Shelley Chernin and Steve Brightman) [2014, Crisis Chronicles Press. and nearly a dozen chapbooks including Beat Attitude [NightBallet, 2015], It Takes More Than Chance to Make Change [The Poet's Haven, 2013], Water Works [Recycled Karma Press, 2012], Electric Company [Writing Knights Press, 2011] and, with Doug Manson and Bree, Identity Crises [Green Panda Press, 2009]. John has also published Cheap and Easy Magazine, Songs in the Key of Cleveland: An Anthology of the 2013 Best Cleveland Poem Competition, #ThisISCLE: An Anthology of the 2014 Best Cleveland Poem Competition, and the anti-censorship anthology Fuck Poetry.
John won his first poetry contest as a high school student in 1983. For around a decade at the turn of the millennium, John served as a full-time playwright and occasional music director in residence for the Ministry of Theatre at Marion Correctional Institution. In 2007, his blog was ranked number 1 in several categories on MySpace when he abandoned it to create his own website. Subsequently, John won the first poetry slam he ever competed in; created PoetryElyria; formed Poets of Lorain County; has contributed irregularly to the Cleveland Poetics and Ohio Poetry Association blogs; served as the OPA's webmaster; has performed at bars, festivals, theaters, bookstores, libraries and galleries across the Midwest; and is perhaps most proud of his work (since 2008) as the founding editor of Crisis Chronicles Press.
