Condition: Used - Very Good


So there are no excuses here, and not a lot of explanations. I offer you here, my poems, my words, or at least some of them, inadequate as they might be. In any event it makes me smile to think that perhaps some good will come of this path. So it does come down to arrogance after all..the idea that I will make a difference, leave a mark, be well thought of by others..all marks of a man who has not yet resolved the paradox of being.

Edition: 2

Seller ID: 46878

ISBN: 1930974353

Condition: Used - Very Good


Poetry. The kinetic energy of John Rybicki's poems is his unmistakable signature.His poem "Traveling at High Speeds" opens with the lines, "Some night my body takes the shape of this city." That urban shape is the shape of John Rybicki's poetry as well. The city in question is, of course, Detroit, but whether Detroit itself is the subject, as it is in many of his poems, or not, the cadence of its streets informs the slashing attack of Rybicki's vivid language.

These reflections, leavened with a fierce wit and moving bravura of language, are extracted from the origins and ends of the poet's life--his birth in the final spasms of the second World War, the fears and excitements of yout...
