Futures, Elections by Tyrone Williams


Tyrone Williams poems in Futures, Elections are ruminations on the nature of the dual realms we call heaven and earth, and of how we humans may move thru these realms. The poems here are at turns, or in combination, ironic, comic, wistful, and metaphysical. An extremely intelligent and deeply delving language. As Harold Bloom would tell us, worth all the difficulties we encounter here.

An Excerpt from the Poem

A Day In Heaven (Procrustean Sestina)

After gratitude-sublime surprise-
(For who among us imagined himself in heaven?)
There was nothing else to do
Except convert the wonders into signs
