Whether John Dorroh taught any secondary science is still being discussed. However, he managed to show up every morning at 6:45 for a couple of decades with at least three lesson plans and a thermos of robust coffee. His poetry has appeared in Red Fez, Red Dirt Forum, Dead Mule Society, Dime Show Review, North Dakota Quarterly, Piker Press, Tuck, Suisun Valley Review Ospressan, Selcouth Station, and several others. He also writes short fiction and the occasional rant. He splits his time between Mississippi and Illinois and travels as often as possible to cool places such as Iceland and Ireland.
