moon music, haiku of Bill Cooper


Categories: ,


Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2019 by The Haiku Foundation!

This is Bill Cooper’s sixth full-length collection with Red Moon Press — a substantial body of work, and a considerable contribution to ELH. Through it we have become aware of his predilections — the behavior of birds, the salvation of music, the things we do with our hands. He tempers his irony regarding his fellow humans with an acceptance of the way the rest of the universe keeps to its regular course. It’s a strategy for sanity.

“Bill Cooper is a poet who has more than found his groove. Each poem is an expression of a specific time and space that is instantly recognizable as tapping into its own truth.”
     — Peter Newton
dusk deepens the play of ruddy daggerwings

          moon music
          tapping the bottom
          of a tray of coins

Hendrix between chords the whoosh of a pull tab
