Salem Poetry Project Featuring Hudson Schweirkert @ IKE Box

Hudson Schweikert has lived in a number of places but most of his life has been rural. Schweikert went from the backwoods of the deep south to sitting on a houseboat with Alan Watts. It’s been a great life but most of it was spent in field and forest. Schweikert has been a farmer most of his life. He doesn’t think of himself as a poet and doesn’t understand the rules of poetry. He just scribbles down some things about his life as they occur to him, Schweikert has always loved words.
