9781511925143: Peripheral Visions: and Other Poetic Perceptions

Remember when the refrigerator would stop humming and it was only then you realized it was humming? We're so used to being in motion that daily activities become the refrigerator hum, so we often stop thinking about how to change some of them. Having unconsciously accepted them as "how it is" we become content with the hum while we're on a kind of mental cruise control. We don't stop to think that just seeing things from even a slightly different perspective can be enough to turn the hum off. These aren't just poems. They are word levers. They are changes in perspective. Not perspectives in literature books but those you encounter daily. While reading them you will notice the hum cease.

From the Author:

"Read poetry every day of your life. Poetry is good because it flexes muscles you don't use often enough. Poetry expands the senses and keeps them in prime condition. It keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your ear, your tongue, your hand." - Ray Bradbury  I've tried my best to make this poetry faithful to the spirit of what the great Mr. Bradbury said above. Though known for his short stories, poetry flexed his imagination and oiled squeaky thoughts. Let it do so for you. This is my first book and it was a pleasure to write. I hope it will be a pleasure to read.

About the Author:

Bruce Newman lives in North Carolina with his wife Jennifer. Though he still works he's quit the rat race and sits on the sidelines drinking lemonade. You will see his dust whenever drama makes an appearance.
