Earlier this year, Missouri's first poet laureate, WALTER BARGEN, shared some of his original poetry featured in Today's Farmer (MFA Incorporated's monthly magazine); well, I guess there's more where that came from because he's back to read six more poems against a backdrop of photos by staff photographer Kerri Lotven.
