Meet the Poet
Don Krieger is a biomedical researcher living in Pittsburgh, PA. He earns his living as part of a group which is trying to understand and treat head injury. He has built satellites, worked in the operating room, and has been in a cult. In his poetry and short blog pieces, he aims to express ideas with unambiguous clarity and intensity. He willingly sacrifices rhyme, meter, art, cleverness, elegance, and beauty for these. Don's poetry has appeared or is forthcoming online in Tuck Magazine, Uppagus Magazine, and Fragile Lilacs, and in print in Hanging Loose (1972), Neurology (September, 2017), and The Taj Mahal Review (December, 2016).
