Poetry. Poet Joseph Reich writes from a great inner pressure of experience and memory. His senses are open to an America frozen in a forever unconsummated act of rotting; with humor, empathy, and a vast, restless energy, his experience bursts out, capturing the fleeting world in a poetic bubble with an almost painterly repletion, so that for a moment it becomes whole and tangible, authentic both to the outer reality to which it is a touching tribute, and to his own nature.
Joseph D. Reich is a social worker and displaced New Yorker who lives with his wife and eleven-year-old son up in the high mountains of Vermont. He has appeared in a wide variety of eclectic literary journals both here and abroad, been nominated six times for The Pushcart Prize, and is the author of numerous books of poetry and cultural studies including Drugstore Sushi (Thunderclap Press), TAKING THE FIFTH AND RUNNING WITH IT (Broadstone Books) and Connecting the Dots to Shangrila (Fomite Press).Author City: MONTPELIER, VT USA
