Cary Bynum knows that the job of the poet is to make the world more available to the reader. These poems shine with gratitude and the simple but profound concerns of the human heart. They show us what it means to live a meaningful life, to be aware of the small and beautiful mysteries that surround us every day." - David Bottoms Georgia Poet Laureate "Cary Bynum has done a terrific job capturing so much that is so important to so many people, especially Southerners. His imagery is superb throughout and his use of other poetic elements effective and well plotted." - Bill Pell English Teacher Former Managing Editor of PMLA " 'The Chinaberry Tree' itself is an epic elegy to childhood, a period dating from April to December 1946. As we move through the poem's seasons, the flashes of sights, sounds and people come together to tell a story, rich in detail and truth, and capture images that are both heartbreaking and breathtaking. " 'Other Poems' consists of short bursts like Nickel-Plated Fenders: sheer magic and terror photographed in dreamlike images; the quiet bridging of life of the `Vicar'; the Southern gothic grotesqueness of 'The Rain Smiler' and 'Speckled Sunlight'; and the subtle guilt of visiting your grandparents in 'Sitting with Grand-mother Ikey: And there are longer works like 'Five City Woods' which remembers when there were primeval forests in Atlanta neighborhoods for boys to roam through. Cary Bynum may be better known as a playwright, but when he dies, they'll bury a poet." - Jeff Fields Author, A Cry of Angels, among other works.
