Poetry. "BLUE RAIN MORNING is a transplant story clocking Jamey Jones from Pensacola, FL to Brooklyn, NY, dropping buoys of observations as and on excursions. Jones is both a resident and traveler of these poems, where 'abroad here means elsewhere' and elsewhere is 'how to write / this new wave of lost.' He wields a deft line-weather in wild prose poem visions, concise slivers of urban operation, or intricate musical dreams spinning out from consciousness 'like a giant / whippoorwill / leaning inward'"—Edmund Berrigan. "Jamey Jones can communicate the truth in poetry. You sense no hesitation nor do you doubt his words"—Bernadette Mayer.
