I’m, a little behind, finally getting around to talking about National Poetry Month here on the 6th. Better late than never, right?
I came across a gem this week. Wet Cement: A Mix of Concrete Poetry by Bob Raczka.
If you have ever tried to write concrete poetry, you know how hard it is to do really well. Bob Raczka is a master, and this book proves it. This book has 21 poems that play with the form and well as the title.
With topics as diverse as mazes, dominoes, pencil erasers, and the subway, each of the poems makes the reader smile and think. No matter how old the reader, there is something here for everyone.
