April Feature Jon Taylor

jontaylorJon Taylor started out long ago by writing song lyrics, and his poems today demonstrate his roots as a lyricist. All his poems are in four movements like a standard song lyric, and many of them employ “hook lines,” as they are called on Music Row, in the same repetition patterns used since the Tin Pan Alley era. Jon is proud to be the featured reader at Poetry in the Brew for the poetry month of April.
