Biography of Bruce Deitrick Price
Novelist; author of seven books; artist; poet, and education reformer.
Thing I'm most excited about at this time is I just redesigned my lit site Lit4u.com. A nice miscellany of poetry, essays, fiction.
During the last year, I've gone very aggressively back into fiction, new projects and old projects. See covers of my new novels on Lit4u.com
My ed site is Improve-Education.org.

Bruce Deitrick Price Poems
Theoryland / Canto I
Clarity is the cruelest mode, patients aetherized on the table must be code.
oh to uncage words as startling as birds naked and silken full of song and shriek
Later Than You Think / For S. W.
Even more than delicious and desirable you are—and this is universally verifiable— absolutely and totally unreliable. Another day or two of you, and I—so placid and pliable-
this poem is a dream you wish to escape if only you would awake
Death will one day hold you in his arms and sweetly kiss you; death will know how
oh to uncage words
as startling as birds
naked and silken
full of song and shriek
flung into the envious air
on a wonder of wings
to spin and soar and rise
dazzling our days
