last night of the carnival, haiku of Marsh Muirhead
Marsh Muirhead’s debut full-length collection of English-language haiku for Red Moon Press was decades in the making, and it shows. These are assured, acutely rendered vignettes of small-town life, with its richness and peccadilloes. A midwestern sensibility invests the whole volume, and bespeaks a calm acceptance of things, as well as an unsettled regard for what is about to come. Each poem is well-turned, and the reader knows s/he is in good hands throughout.
