In the lead up to the completion and release of Thunderclap! Mag – Love edition, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite poets of all time Mike McGee. Mike comes out of the San Jose area and I judged him at the World Poetry Slam competition in Ottawa, Ontario many, many years ago. Mike is one of a kind. He is one of the most pleasurable poets I’ve ever had the chance to hear and read. Mike has that rawness about him. He is now in Massachusetts still making a living as a poet. (Something so many of us dream of…)
The poem I first heard Mike recite was A Letter to Neil Armstrong. I cried like a baby when he finished. (It was a little embarrassing, actually)
Be sure to check out more of Mike’s stuff and if you can, see him actually perform in your area!
