Book of the Week: late geese up a dry fork
Burnell Lippy has that rarest of things in haiku — an unmistakeable voice. His poems have a verbal aridity that belies their grounding in things as they are — that is, in the stuff of life, in all its succulence. late geese is his only full-length book (Red Moon Press, 2003) to date.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Love his work.
Burnell Lippy is masterly with what he does best: present something very particular, very fragile, and at the same time archetypal and timeless.
