C.M. Rivers grew up reading to the sound of rain on the roof, in the countryside of northwestern Oregon.  He was blessed to grow up without a television, giving him the chance to fall in love with language and books.  He’s the author of the poetry collection How To Carry Soup (Homebound Publications 2020).  His poetry has appeared in literary magazines and journals across the United States and in England.  He’s spent most of his life wrestling with phobias and generally learning the hard way.  If you’ve nothing better to do (and surely you must have) you can follow C.M. here on this website, or on Goodreads, Amazon, Facebook, or Instagram @dreadpiratebooks.

  2. I discovered your poetry through your book How to Carry Soup.
    Thank you for sharing your introspective heart mind and your vision that seems able to see and willing to explore the light and the shadow of life to discover the magic.
    Recognizing kindred spirits through heart-shared art keeps my hope and trust kindled in my soul. Peace.
