Kenneth Lamb has been writing poetry, privately and personally, since the 1960’s. He was born and raised in Santa Cruz California. He has lived abroad. Influenced first by such poets as Lew Welch, Sylvia Plath, William Stafford, W S Merwin, and, later, by Philip Levine, Larry Levis and Carolyn Forche, and, always by Antonio Porchia, Mr. Lamb’s writings have been a work in progress now for many decades, shared, but also kept within a solitude meant for aging. There is a timelessness to his work, especially regarding a body of writing he has been working on for the past year. His poetry and short stories have appeared in Puerto Del Sol, New Mexico State University, Porter Gulch Review, The Metro, The Santa Cruz Weekly, Cathedral Of Insanity, and other publications. He currently lives in Olympia, Washington. He has one daughter, Jilda, and a dear friend, K, both of whom he confides in.
