Steve Goldman
May 2005



art by Luis Rubio Vargas

    Steve Goldman is the founder/MC of The Venice Poetry Readings in The New Library, successor/continuation of The Venice Poetry Readings in the Old Jail, after a short 20-year hiatus.
    His work has appeared in a variety of publications, including Solo, Verve, Glue,The Venice Beachhead, The Santa Monica Bay News, Abalone Moon, poeticdiversity and The Walt Whitman Pioneer, the last his junior high school literary magazine in 1951. In that publication, the last two lines of his debut poem were cut off via Goldman's failure to include his whole text on just one side of a page, as required. Additionally, he appears in Abalone Moon, of which he is an Associate Editor. Goldman fervently denies conflict of interest thereabout; if Editor-in-Chief Velene Campbell is silly enough to publish Goldman's poems, he disclaims responsibility.
    His long awaited (by himself at any rate) collection The Canon of the Lone Ranger has been published by Sybaritic Press, after a short interlude of 35 years in preparation. His chapbook Rachmunas has been approved for publication by Casa de Poesia Press.
    Goldman teaches fencing, the sport based on sword fighting, not the art of receiving stolen goods. Inasmuch as Goldman is also the king, he has recently awarded himself an MFA. Following Octavio Paz, who said ?Poetry is important, the poet is not. Goldman abominates the Yupoet phenomenon.



Two Haikus For George Winston



The music

The resurrection of the seasons


Looking away from the wind


When there is nothing

Pieces of the new moon
