Language for the Living and the Dead

Listen Now

Chis Ransick was the first and only person to serve as Denver’s poet laureate, from 2006-2010. He has a new book of poetry, called “Language for the Living and the Dead.” It’s all about transitions. With host Ryan Warner, he reads and discusses, “When the Buzzards Return to Crestone,” a poem that celebrates vultures, "Tango Villanelle" and "The Comedian Takes His Own Life."
