Kirby Wright

Author Kirby Wrightabout this book: The title is from the poem of the same name found on the last page of the book. I wanted to demonstrate how making music is seductive, especially when the maker is somewhat good looking and the violin is the musical instrument. I mean, that bow moving over the violin strings is a very sexy motion, don't you think? In addition to this poem you will find Flash Poetics, that is, self-contained micro narratives that link up to offer a vision of the narrator's troubled childhood, and how those troubles trickle in to influence the adult life. There are also environmentally-conscious poems such as "The Great Oak," which hint at planet salvation through the caring ways of the young. Some of the poems shatter the idealist present by fast forwarding into the future to reveal unsustainable relationships and the longing of lonely adults forced to retreat to fantasy to cope not only with their daily lives, including vacations where they contemplate their places/roles on this earth and what memories of themselves they will ultimately leave behind.
