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