About the Author
Steve Edwards was a young farmer in West Texas when he found poetry as a form of expression. His work began in a crucible of heat and dust, and followed in his days as a student at then-psychedelic University of Texas and later, Texas Tech University. He was drafted and became a warrior in 1969, serving in Viet Nam from '69-70. He became a Speech/Language Pathologist, working in a VA Medical Center and at Texas State University. He currently works in the Austin public schools. Irony and compassion are his muses.
