The selected and new poems in Midwest / Mid-East begin with an invocation, visit the Midwest, travel to the Mid-East, then settle into contemporary times within global contexts. Ranging from the lyric to experimental, the poems’ rich imagery and language express the complexity and multiplicity of contemporary perspectives of life, spirituality, love, politics, erotics and (mis)communication. The poetry in the book expresses a self-aware and questioning intellect emotionally engaged in the world which constructs the speaker’s uncertain identity. These two poems represent one selected (Late Night Jazz) and one new (But Hear the Dissonance, 1948-2012). If you like these, please consider purchasing the book to help support my work. Comments and reviews welcome.
