Just Above Water: Prose Poems

by

Just Above Water: Prose Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Louis Jenkins is one of the most subtle poets of his generation"--Robert Bly. This new gathering of 50 prose poems amply confirms Louis Jenkins's mastery of the prose poem form. Whether confronting the dilemma of too much snow in northern Minnesota, sensing the spiritual forces beneath undulating lake waves, or observing a cloud of tiny insects as "the world's largest singles bar", these humorous, fascinating vignettes open an inquiry into the deeper meanings of everyday American life.

Synopsis:

A new gathering of 50 prose poems that extends and refines the poet's mastery of the form.
