Dakota Midday: Jim Reese
Poet Jim Reese finds inspiration in such ordinary things as bowling alleys, classrooms, bumper stickers and children’s drawings. He also draws upon his experiences as an English professor at Mount Marty College in Yankton, his work teaching poetry to prison inmates and his life as a father to a couple of young daughters. His poetry also frequently finds the strangeness and humor in the familiar. Reese is out with a new collection called Really Happy and he joined Dakota Midday and shared a few poems from the book.
