About this title


The poetry offered in "Leaving the Bough" attempts to present an entire range of human experience - the overall impression of what it's like to be alive in the America of today and of the recent past. Occasionally the lines may hint at confusion, that particular confusion that comes from a lived point of view, but what serious poet has not found the world confusing, mysterious, and wonder-full? Perhaps this anthology will find its way into the hands of someone embarking on an overnight train ride ... and will offer that reader a trip into strange and previously dangerous foreign territory.
