Rick Mitchell is currently a resident of Western New York State. His poetry has recently appeared in the Louisville Review, Skylark, the Cimarron Review, the Concho River Review, and the Wisconsin Review. Characterized by striking imagery and unexpected metaphors, his poems also focus on personas that vary from young, impressionable children to experienced, yet somewhat disillusioned adults. But in each poem, he attempts to create a unique voice, one that is both consistent with the subject and marked by an attempt to see the world clearly despite its iridescence. Along with Speaking of Seed and Night, Mitchell’s first book, Before Every Other Fall offers readers an intriguing glimpse into the world of expected disappointments and understated triumphs.
