About Black Greyhound Media
True to its dog-based logo, Black Greyhound
Medias motto is "Poetry not for pussies." Established in 2000
by poet Brian Daly, Black Greyhound Media is based in Nashville, Tennesseea town known for the
straight-shootin, heartfelt lyrics of country music. Black Greyhound
Media carries on
that tradition with honest, passionate books
by poets who hold nothing back.
Black Greyhound Media represents a clean break
with the bund of timid publishers and the usual crop of drab,
milquetoast volumes. With a recent book by Dan Powers, a standout in
the United States of Poetry TV series on PBS, Black Greyhound Media
keeps restoring the vitality and urgency that poetry lost, after the
Beats, in the last century.
Black Greyhound Media poets are not afraid to use the language,
situations, and forbidden thoughts of real life. Readers will instantly
recognize a dimension in this poetry that has been missing from the
American literary scene for too long, a dimension that speaks to their
own experience of life in all its unglamorous beauty.
Those looking for the politically correctin
either politics or poetryneed not enter here. But to those hungry for
pictures of life as it's really lived: Welcome!
