Smoke And The South

Smoke And The South, by Peter G Res

his website

Peter G Res writes right out on the edge of sense, where hanging on to a thought too too long might leave blisters, where it becomes more important to follow the glint and the glimmer of where the thought leads rather than force it into a predictable furrow. When poetry works, it makes sense in ways that logic will never follow. An excerpt:

So Meditate In Traffic

So I met the kid once
at a porch party

the day I decided to skip class
for coffee he stood
to offer me a free drink

hot black with soy
a small table
stained newspapers
cars and laptops crushed
into oblivion

I dance with my cell phone
call Alexis to break every promise

I won’t be coming back

—Peter G Res
