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.
"These three or four liners are stunning as lighting and strike a match across the imagination."
~ Bruce Owens, author of Across the Light, Eddies in the Rush,
Quiet Places and Mend the Broken Branch
"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. and winner of the Jack Kerouac
Award from Cherry Creek editions and the Thomas Hornsby Ferril Poetry
" . . . 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.
