Biography of John McCornack

John McCornack poet

Do you like Red Dirt Poetry? Do you love to walk a red dirt road and feel a fence post. If you do, you have come to the right place.

I am a Caterpillar Engineer by training, but my primary love is photography.  I spend many hours traveling down the backroads in my home state of Oklahoma, looking for that special sunset, old barn,  or a windmill.  Many of my photographs are available for viewing on various internet sites. In general my poems are short and to the point.  Most were written to illustrate my photography.

I have over 2000 web pages, all of which include poetry from various poets who have writen poems to illustrate my photos. My Home Page may be found at

Sticky Buns

Guess what I found at Marie Calendar's
Large Sticky buns and Hazzleberry pies
Designed to be appealing to one’s eyes
But now I must take the road back home

But maybe tomorrow I will be back here
With my Sony digital camera in my hand
If l am sober and the creek don’t expand
Will be searching for places to eat alone
