Wilson Wiley Variations
Poems from Wet Cement Press, 2019.
These are poems that I began many years ago then set aside as I changed my focus to writing fiction (and raising children and being a husband and . . .) About a year ago my interest in reading poetry suddenly returned and when it did I surprised myself by pulling these poems out of the drawer and working on them again. It was a strange, perplexing and ultimately powerful experience. Now the poems somehow feel new again. I guess it’s true, “The past is never dead,” as Faulkner famously said. And for some of us writing is never finished, or abandoned, it’s in a perpetual state of becoming.
