Roy Mash is a longtime board member of Marin Poetry Center.
In a previous life he held degrees in English, Philosophy, and Computer Science.
Currently he appears as a regular in the movie of his life, where his character can be found doodling his time away, staring out of cafe windows, dabbing up the seeds that have fallen from an everything bagel, and mentally thumbing over his poems that have appeared widely in journals such as Agni, Atlanta Review, Barrow Street, Nimrod, Passages North, Poetry East, Rhino, and River Styx.
His first book, Buyer’s Remorse, debuted in 2014.
Mash’s poems celebrate the small, the overloo!ed, the underrated. drawing on sources from The Three Stooges to Archimedes, Lavoisier to Tweety Bird, Mash is a latter day Anti-Oracle, a nail in the tire of post-modernity, an incorrigible wag who has smuggled his pea shooter into the Church of Poetry.
Be ready to duck!
