"The ghastly chrome crescent moon perched in the pitch black sleep of sky watches time unwind"......I'll give you a second to take that all in. Mmmmmmm, delicious. That is a line from the poem by John Clinton called "Lunar Bridges", one of the many eloquent poems in our new collection, The Understanding between Foxes and Light. This poem has such a sense of dark with just a hint of light that keeps its head above the water. This poem has a great beat poet feel which sometimes gets lost in todays non-beat poet world. There is also a crazy oil painting feel here reminding me of Breton or Apollinaire. In other words, fun for the whole family.
