Meet the Poet
David Thornbrugh likes to tell people he was born in Tokyo while his father was with the occupation. Raised in Northern California and coming of age in the sixties, he has spent much of the last several decades bouncing about the world, having resided in Sapporo and Tokyo, Japan; Krakow, Poland; and Jinju, South Korea. He also once spent a year in Canada selling vibrators and crotchless panties, which generated at least a few poems he is willing to share. Most recently he resides in Seattle, Washington, where he reads regularly at local open mic venues. He has most recently been published in the Clark Street Review, The Artistic Muse, Blue Collar Review, and Convergence. David is now looking forward to reading at a venue in Rome, where he is meeting his wife at the end of her three-month tour of Europe as a butoh dancer. He expects to get some more poems from the experience. Read.
