About Brian Dean Powers

Brian StandingI am a lifelong resident of Madison, Wisconsin USA.

My prose and poetry have been published in anthologies, in magazines, and online. Three of my poems have been set to music by Madison composer, Brian Schultz.

The title of this site, “The Body’s Heated Speech,” comes from my poem of the same name. It applies specifically to my long involvement with distance running and cycling, and more generally to the experience of love and passion.

“The Body’s Heated Speech” is also the title of my as-yet-unpublished chapbook of poems. 

You can read a selection of my favorite poems by Mary Oliver and other writers at Words for the Year. You can also check out an autobiographical essay I wrote in 2009 for Our Lives Magazine.
