baatz_atherringcovecoverRonald Baatz flaunts haiku form in his search of a more natural diction throughout this earliest volume (Lockout Press, 2002). His reputation as a fine bird poet began here and is in full evidence.

an umbrella left here on friday usually is gone by monday
forgotten in the cellar a bicycle with both tires flat
a spark plug held tight in my father’s old fist as he approaches the shed
please! let’s not argue while such a beautiful twilight huddles in the chest of the quail
as fireflies swarm she experiences the mysterious through a screen
on its back the beetle plugs into a new frenzied energy
