Poems That Look Just Like Poems
Presses universitaires de Rouen et du Havre, 11 avr. 2019 - 136 pages
A startlingly direct, clear look at daily experience, including the graceful changes of direction in consciousness. At once a spiritual journal and a pared down writing that arises, in part, from years of Zen meditation, Lazer’s book continues an American tradition of spiritual accounting: the sacred, the holy, and the mysterious emerging from daily experience. These poems have an inviting simplicity to them. They are poems that reward re-reading.
Hank Lazer is the author of thirty books of poetry—most recently Slowly Becoming Awake (N32)—and three volumes of essays. His poems have been translated into French, Chinese, Italian, and Spanish.
