I recently met up with a former coworker in order to help him move some furniture from one side of town to the other.

While having a beer, he showed me the finished product of many a carpool conversation that we had on the 30 miles south to Waterbury from Burlington and back again: a limited edition, hand bound, 14 page book of his poetry. 10 poems are included in the edition from Tim Barcomb & Plowboy Press. The poetry itself is reminiscent of William Carlos Williams, draped in the Imagist diction.

“Winter,” being my favorite, is featured above.

Update: For another review of Tim Barcomb’s book of poetry, check out the Kingdom Books blog which is written by Beth Kanell and her husband Dave, owners of a Fine Press bookstore in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. You’ll find the review here.
