The Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument turned 2 on May 21, 2016. To commemorate this birthday Grandma Moses Press presents DINGLEBERRY PEAK: an anthology of poems celebrating the Organ Mountains.
The funniest peak in the Organ Mountains is Dingleberry Peak. How was it named? I asked an ant and she kept on walking. I asked a skunk and he said he was running late for a picnic in The Narrows. I didn’t ask the rocks.
I’m thankful to Meg G. Freyermuth for her honest drawings of Dingleberry Peak, and I’m thankful to the 14 poets who contributed to this anthology. I’m excited for you to read these poems that celebrate our mountains. I advise you to go outside to read them. Find some shade if you can. Wear a bandanna over your mouth if the dust is blowing. You’ve seen the Organs, now see them from the inside out.
