For Akeith Walters, words are the art of his heart. Some his literary credits include publication in a dozen anthologies and numerous literary journals. Most recently, his poetry has appeared in Di-verse-city, the 2012 , 2013, and 2014 anthologies of the Austin International Poetry Festival as well as in Gyroscope Review and The Linnet’s Wings (2015). Also, a poem of his won first place in the San Antonio Poetry Fair and was published in their anthology, Voices Along The River. It won him some money, too. He continues to maintain membership with the Sun Poets Society of San Antonio, Tx.
At the end of the day, he likes to sit and remember how ice melts in a mug of bourbon while he contemplates the difference between poetry and prose. The latter is more difficult to pen down, but sometimes when the room quiet and still, the stories will hang around like cigarette smoke exhaled in frustration.
