Dear Gilbert Sorrentino & Other Poems By Jack Lorts available now from Finishing Line Press


A POEM FROM THE BOOK:



(On Dan's cover painting)

Daniel Robinson's Morning View

I know canyons,
tho they be
the other
side the river,
shadows hiding
in distant brown,
a vineyard,
a winery perhaps,
sliding into the river
just west of
where the picture ends.

Shadows reflect
in water
the world beyond the river,
light from the east,
as always,
in early morning—
an arm extending
into the east/west flow,
blocking Siddhartha
who becomes
the distant brown.

A slender palisade
beckons in the distance,
to become one
with the sky,
with the river,
as clouds hide
the brightest blue.

The artist sits
atop Blaylock Ridge
looking across the river,
into distant brown.
