Fall madly in love with the earth's fickle ways...

Meet Paul Zarzyski...


This year, Zarzyski's poem, "Putting the Rodeo Try Into Cowboy Poetry" is emblazoned on the front windows of the Western Folklife Center in Elko. Zarzyski writes mostly in free verse, and has been shaking things up at the festival (in a good way) for 23 years. Traditional cowboy poetry is written in rhyming couplets....

To rhyme or not to rhyme...that is the question.
