The Speed of Sweat
Beyond Nature Poetry!
Fletcher's work is often about nature but here he speaks out on politics, history, religion, and ecology in a collection of eclectic musings. He writes of discovering an arrowhead and of discovering patience. Of stretched friendships and lost loves. Of unity and division, JFK and FDR, of November 3 and January 6, and about reading and writing poetry.
Poetry: from Panamá to Pigalle to Pluto.
Filled with emotional candor and lyrical beauty.
Fletcher writes about love ... against a cosmic panorama
Turning life into poetry
A penetrating and provocative smorgasbord. His poems sing and inform in thoughtful,
non-conforming, wonderful ways. Life's harmonies coupled with a realistic sprinkling
of irony and brilliant dissonance. An existential celebration of life.
A linguistic movie!
