The poems of Larry Colker (1947-2018) are wistfully wrapped packages of unexpected images, dead-on metaphors, and everyday mysteries. His most recent collection is Amnesia and Wings (Tebot Bach, 2013). An active member of the L.A. poetry world, he is well known as co-host, with Jim Doane, of the legendary Redondo Poets Tuesday night reading series at Coffee Cartel in Redondo Beach. Winner of the 2006 California Writers Exchange poetry contest sponsored by Poets & Writers, Inc., his work has appeared in many print and online journals, as well as California poetry anthologies. His chapbooks include Girl with Tattooed Heart, Boy Standing (2008), What the Lizard Knows: New and Selected Poems (2003), and At the Curb, Car Waiting, Boy Standing (1997). In 2006, he and poet/artist/photographer Danielle Grilli published a joint chapbook, Hunger Crossing. Colker is an instructional designer.
