a peep within, haiku of Bill Cooper


Categories: ,


Bill Cooper’s several previous books with Red Moon Press — overtones, young osprey, the fingertips of a glassblower and b-flat blues — have been met with much acclaim, and have cultivated an audience for his direct, even plangent, voice. a peep within further cultivates and refines this space, cementing the author as one of the few working in haiku whose voice has become unmistakable.

““Bill Cooper’s unique view of everyday life is pointedly rendered. Layers of various sensory perceptions are skillfully combined to paint understated, subdued, almost factual images. Exactly this simplicity invites the reader to experience each poem and leaves him enough space for his emotional reaction. . . . the kind of haiku-poetry that is news and stays news.”

— Beate Conrad

          a slight twist
          of the tuning peg
          warming breeze

     bobblehead night his hero so still

          steep hillside
          the cane knife grazing
          a shin guard
