Read his poem in TSAR‘s Fall 2015 issue.
Martin Steingesser‘s poems whisper, shout and occasionally slam. He’s author of three books of poems, Yellow Horses, Brothers of Morning and The Thinking Heart: the Life & Loves of Etty Hillesum, the latter versions based on Hillesum’s journal and letters, composed and arranged for performance. In addition to performing throughout Maine, The Thinking Heart toured Europe, performing at the Center for Dialog & Prayer, in Oświeçim, Poland, and the International Etty Hillesum Congress in Belgium, in January 2014. He was Portland, Maine’s first Poet Laureate, 2007-09. Find out more about the author here.
