Chris Mason is a poet who has lived in Baltimore
since 1970. He is a member of The Tinklers and
the Old Songs archaic Greek poetry band. His
latest books are “Hiccups” and “Airs of Air”.
John Mason’s poems have appeared in the chapbook “Fade to Prompt,” from Tuumba Press, the anthology “In the American Tree,” and such magazines as Hills, Famous, Truck, the Little Magazine, tongue to boot, Chain, OOVRAH, Nadine, Luna Tack and nadir. He was born in Minneapolis and now lives in Austerlitz, NY with his partner of 37 years, Susan Davies, and from time to time their three grown children, Bronwyn, Kari and Noah.
Noah Davies-Mason is his father’s son. He sits down to eat, sleeps with his clothes on and loves to present himself as a certain something. For instance, he attends St. John’s College in Annapolis and toys with the idea of becoming something other than what he is. The world is big, he has thought, and must be up to some good. By presuming in this manner, has he in fact backed himself into a corner? But if the corner is there, all is well, the fear may subside.
