NOTHING RUSTY HERE

26 Apr

Hosho McCreesh brings the real goodness in this poetry spotlight at Rusty Truck. These poems radiate a simple thoughtfulness that gets lost too often. Great work here.

Here’s the beginning of the first poem, Sucker:

Walking into work the other day
a co-worker told me,
“Hosh, there’s a sucker
on your desk,”
and I said, “Man,
there’s a sucker
at my desk
everyday.”

Everyone
laughed.

But I wasn’t
kidding.
And maybe we’re fools,
getting up,
day after day,
hoping the world
might bring us something
new and different,
might bring us something
less drab,
less rote,
less lifeless.
