Black Leaf: Poems by Barry Seiler
From the genuine horror of Sam Peckinpah to the tragic lyricism of Sam Cooke, Barry Seiler's Black Leaf explores Americana with a poetic that announces to the reader that the mantra of what we know ourselves to be is all there is. Seiler takes Auden's origin of poetry in language and makes the subject happen. Black Leaf is exquisite poetry of subtle and ironic commitment, steeped in a love and respect for language. —Afaa M.
