Book of the Week: Endgrain

 

 

For our Book of the Week, I reprise Endgrain, haiku and senryu 1988-1997, by Dee Evetts. One of my personal favourites, this volume of poems contains scarcely one misstep, and literally dozens of fine, well written captures that show a mind responding imaginatively to commonplace experiences, as good haiku must.

 

heat of the day
still in the brick wall
of the liquor store

 

 

with a flourish
the waitress leaves behind
rearranged smears

 

 

20,000 feet
traces of masking tape
on the jet engine
