stone: poems, by Steven Carter
Steven Carter continues his amazing and prolific series of poetry collections with the third volume of his latest trilogy, stone, following upon his earlier fragments and ocean (all available from Red Moon Press). In the past Carter has channeled Catullus, opined on Browne, and reminisced on the forgotten dusty 1950s in California. Here he continues to create the future from his past, in a rollocking and riveting style.

Not yet. As you wrestle with it, how many waves Come to you, unnoticed.
