city beach: haiku of Dee Evetts


Dee Evetts’ city beach is his first new collection in a quarter century, and well worth the wait . . .


“It’s been twenty-six years since endgrain. If you have wondered what Dee Evetts has been up to, city beach is your answer and an entirely satisfactory answer it is. There have been few haiku collections that have rested so firmly on the sense of touch in its various aspects, from the visceral to a kind of poetic reiki. The reader can rely upon this poet; sure-handed and purposeful from the first page to the last.”

— John Stevenson, Managing Editor, The Heron’s Nest

after the rain
in my vegetable patch
a new crop of stones

the other team's huddle
we try to read
their body language

it took time
for me to get it

we never did understand
what kind of aliens
he meant
