About the Author

Poet. Punk Rocker. Firefighter.

Kevin W. Burke was born and raised in the aged suburban stretch, industrial parks, and haunted forests of the Chicago Southland. He has found work in a grocery store, animal shelter, power plants, scaffold yard, coffee shop, windshield warehouse, film studio, bar, classrooms, the back of an ambulance, a fire engine, and the poetry of the homemade flyers, frayed cables, and broken nosed laughter between punk-rock and hip-hop.  When he’s not doing poety things, he is working as a firefighter and resides in South Austin with a wonderful lady and their three big dogs.

Going Down Singing

"Kevin W. Burke's work is a mix between punk rock and grunge-rap drinking a cold beer on the front porch.  His poetry and person is genuine."

Ebony Stewart, 2017 WOWPs Champion and author of Home. Girl. Hood.
