oars up, haiku of Joe Mckeon
Shortlisted for the Touchstone Distinguished Books Award 2019 by The Haiku Foundation!
“oars up is a slow drift back in time to the poet’s growing-up years on the south side of Chicago. A wordsmith, a craftsman, an artist! Joe McKeon captures these childhood memories with sensitivity and emotion.”
— Julie Warther
“With oars up we have a worthy successor to Peggy Lyles’ To Hear the Rain in its testimony to a life as well observed as lived.”
— Scott Mason
