David Bauman & Micah Bauman_October 7, 2021

David Bauman & Micah Bauman – “Mapping the Valley: Hospital Poems” is a father-and-son poetry collaboration by David J. Bauman and Micah James Bauman, published by Seven Kitchens Press (2021).   A rare series of poems in alternating voices… a unique glimpse into the shifting dynamic of care and caring, depression and recovery, tracked throughout with unflinching honesty – Ron Mohring, editor and founding publisher at Seven Kitchens Press.

David has published two previous chapbooks, “Angels & Adultery” (Seven Kitchens Press, 2018) and “Moons, Roads, and Rivers” (Finishing Line Press, 2017). His poems have been published in a number of literary magazines and anthologies, including New Ohio Review, Watershed Review, Flying Island, and Barely South Review.  Micah has been published in South 85 Journal, Word Fountain, Electric Rail, The Blue Nib, and Sage Cigarettes.  His reviews of young adult literature have appeared in his local newspaper, and commentaries on poetry, life, and music can be found on his blog at


Theme: Family ~Whether it’s an aunt you hated, a parent you never knew, a vindictive sibling, or the best friend who was closer than a brother, David and Micah encourage us to interpret family as broadly or narrowly as our poems permit.
