Rusty’s Reading List 2017 | January 29, 2017

emperor-of-water-clocks

This is the second of the two Komunyakaa books I bought after seeing him at VERSeFest, but they are both so different! While Warhorses really had the echoes of his wartime experiences, this time he goes in for a much different setting. At times the poems feel like they would not feel out of place at Goblin Fruit. Not all the time, but certainly some of the time.

I think I recall Amal El-Mohtar also picked up his books while at the reading. I am betting she would really like this book.
