Poetry of Alabama, Mexico and Beyond
River City Publishing
Wayne Greenhaw's prize-winning poetry tells stories about magical countries and fabulous people. Whether Neal Cassady in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, or a publisher in the back offices of a newspaper in Montreal, or civil rights workers on the streets of Montgomery, Alabama.
The poet evokes the unusual, the world of Scott and Zelda, an old-style cantina where writers and artists worshiped, and an artist named Nall.
If you're looking for perfect poetry, go to Yeats or Shelley or Keats. I make no apologies for my rough and ragged rhymes, my torn and tattered couplets, my unmitigated, imperfect alliteration. In these portraits, snags of information, feelings from a long and blemished past, I give you snatches of myself, my observations, my feelings, my life that has been so enhanced by loved ones and great friends, some of whom I remember here. I have been blesssed.
