Description

Joel Fry's poems chart a deeply interior quest. Though the object is predictable-understanding, love, friendship, hope-the poems are highly original. Deep within, where external and internal landscape merge, where easy solutions like monetary success and comfortable suburbia go down before a sharp irony, we meet fleeting memories of a childhood farm, a creek beside which boys played, rare moments of love where a couple sits on a porch. We also meet loneliness, despair, glimpses of truth, and a pervasive joy in the act of creation. The poems are disciplined, intuitive, paradoxical, richly imagined-repaying, over and over, the attention and agility required of those who would follow the poet. Fry leaves us "poised on the edge of a mystery / [we] cannot command, a chorus [we] cannot escape." Harry Moore, author of Time's Fool and Bearing the Farm Away
