Bob Arnold: Forever

Cover of Bob Arnold's Forever

 

Two little beauties from Bob Arnold's new tiny little booklet, Forever.  The handmade paper cover, delightful photos, illustrations and fine poems comprise a production any small press maven might envy (and collector might covet). I don't see it mounted up on the Longhouse website  (oh, here it is)yet, so if you are interested, drop Bob a line at <poetry at sover dot net>, substituting @ for at, and . for dot.




The First Step To Independence
Breaking worse
what you try
to fix







Tobacco Road
what a corny
film

and how
I can't

forget the
old fella's

sadness
                                                       Bob Arnold









my eternal youth ornament--
just three cents
of emperor's pine

     translated by David G. Lanoue






best,
Don
