Urban Haiku and More is Here!
For anyone who knows Patricia Carragon, this newest collection of short, mixed-media poems will surely delight -- if not surprise. From the riotously humorous to the deeply poignant, Patricia covers the emotional terrain with her witty personality unfurled and a display of craft that, like a dancer, seems so effortless. If you love contemporary short verse, you'll certainly savor these confections by a poet who is a spirited observer of the world around her and within her.
–Brenda J. Gannam, Memeber, Haiku Society of America
Patricia Carragon hits the haiku right on the head – making
it as much her form as the masters’ – Funny and deadly
accurate – they stop you in your tracks - It’s no accident that
she starts off with a Kerouac and Bashô haiku - She frees
up the territory – Bashô’s frogs are replaced by bedbugs –
Kerouac’s drugs are replaced by Viagra – very feminine with
no holds barred – very astute and timely – a great read –
guaranteed to free up your notions of what a haiku can’t or
–Hal Sirowitz – author of Father Said
