by David Anthony Martin
A collection of small poems, haiku and micro-poetry that range between the domesticity of washing dishes and curry stains to the esoteric plumbing of the universe. As always, Martin's lines evoke the transcendent within their allusions, but nowhere is this illustrated more concisely than in these tiny poems that measure far beyond their meter.
"David Martin is a voice of the spirit, his poems are Zen anecdotes. He captures the silence behind language, the secrets behind the profound, the mystery behind nature.
One is moved by his language."
~Tony Moffeit, author of Luminous Animal and
Poetry is Dangerous: The Poet is an Outlaw. He won
the Jack Kerouac Award from Cherry Creek editions
and the Thomas Hornsby Ferril Poetry Prize.
"These three or four liners are stunning as lighting and strike a match across the imagination."
~ Bruce Owens, author of Eddies in the Rush,
Quiet Places and Mend the Broken Branch
" . . . like small runic stones,
with lines that you will want
to contemplate again and again."
~Corey Mesler, author of The Sky Needs More Work, The Catastrophe of My Personality, Before the Great Troubling and many other books.
