Casey Bush is a Portland poet whose eighth collection “Student of Hippocampus” was published by Last Word Press in 2018 (Olympia, WA). Novelist/screenwriter Jon Raymond has written about that book: “These are poems that arise bearded and barefoot from the raw American earth. They are by turns sacred, profane, political, gnomic and free.” His poetry has been featured most recently in Pacific Poetry, North Coast Squid, Unlikely Stories, Oddball, Mad Swirl, Former People, Caliban, The Inflectionist Review, Poeming Pigeon, and Otoliths. For 15 years he was the Senior Editor for The Bear Deluxe, an environmental arts magazine. Currently Casey reviews Jazz for Audiophile Audition and is the poetic voice for Notes & Motes: The Vlatkovich Trio Plus One.
