Fragments: Poems and Prose Poems from an Uprooted Life, poems by Steven Carter


Categories: ,


Steven Carter continues his amazing and prolific series of poetry collections with Red Moon Press with this gathering of work on the theme of deracination, as Shakespeare would call it. You will be sure to identify yourself here in the unsettled, nomadic, 21st-century existence in America these pages describe.

“It doesn’t get any better than this.”
     — From a student evaluation/California State University

“When I’m not drunk or confused, I . . .”
Her words, spring 1966, as the affair
Began to fade; was it a cri du Coeur?
Of course it was! Is your heart
Deaf to the colors? Blind to the music
As her eyes flashed from hazel to green?
. . . Booze and tenderness . . .
The moon rose early that night
Illicit as always: nothing new on that score
Save one + one = 0: live-oak shadows
Keeping unsympathetic time.
