About this title


GOAT TROUBLES and other CHICAGO Poems is a broad assortment of fresh poetry celebrating all things Chicago and from the disillusioned heart of the Windy City s grand American obsession baseball Throughout a diverse assembly of poems John Ross conducts a tender yet bold voyage through many of Chicago s most noted and often times overlooked places Honoring his absent guide and declaring inspiration with his opening poem Citing Carl Sandburg in the book s warm early verses Ross declares his devotion and loyalty to the city he s come to call his home LIKE him I too brood about things with my lap top in the corner of an L train Oh and Dante too fingering his dreadful LInferno never heard or smelled any sulfur drops or any hellish Bible fears But like Carl Sandburg I can write volumes about Chicago after breathing the town over for months then years From such elegies as On Behalf of Lovable Losers Subway Series and The Pallid Pier to the reverential tributes affirmed in Green Mill Cocktail Lounge Third Coast Winters and Alta Vista Terrace Ross helps re establish a poetic legacy venerating the unique marvel and contributions of this great Midwestern city A big town once associated with the counterfeit glamour of gangsters to the butchering stockyards and finally with the proud birth of the world s first skyscrapers this compilation gladly rejoices in the ever evolving Chicago one first acknowledged as early as 1883 by that grand American folk hero Mark Twain She is always a novelty for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time Life on the Mississippi
