the necessary fly

 

at Kate's Diner
         under the plastic cake lid              
               – the necessary fly                   (title poem)

 

says much about the working aesthetic upon which the haiku of this book are based.  As this is a gathering of the poet' s favorites over an eleven year span, readers will necessarily find some overlap of haiku from his earlier book, alone tonight, however, the greater part of this collection is not to be found elsewhere.   Kimmel has a great range of interests, employing the full five senses, touching not only on keenly caught moments in nature but also in human nature and the erotic.  A Winfred Press Chapbook:  2001 - 2007.  Perfect bound, 6 x 9, 38 pp.

$7.00 plus $2.50 postage (media mail)  (use order form and write in this book or request a paypal invoice.)

 

a river years from here is a book of haibun, with occasional poems both in traditional and free form that complement the overall themes.  Kimmel is as always a careful observer of both the natural environment, as well as human relational events.  He ranges from the lyrical, or prose poem, to the anecdotal, to the brief, but biting memoir.  Included in a river years from here is a Whitmanesque-style account of the Johnstown Flood of 1889, as experienced and told by his maternal grandmother who, as a child, floated through this unforgettable catastrophe on a rooftop.  A Winfred Press Book: 2005 - 2007. Perfect bound, 6 x 9, 68 pp.

$7.00 plus $2.50 postage (media mail)  (use order form and write in this book or request a paypal invoice.)
