“With Shorts John Lehman gives us one of the marvelous possibilities of the prose poem: something of Midwestern American prose, something of the haiku, humor and high seriousness all in the space of five or six sentences!”—Louis Jenkins, Introduction to Poetry
These poems capture those particular moments when the heart is overwhelmed by beauty and the imagination is electrified by some haunting spirit of voice speaking from deep within a place, an incident or a person. Shorts is the first book comprised entirely of “justified poems”—a new form that capitalizes on the dynamics between the spoken sentence and fixed line length.
