The High Lonesome Sound

The High Lonesome Sound

ByJack Hayes

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The High Lonesome Sound, like its predecessor, Crow on the Wire, is poetry qua journal. While this book continues the project begun with Crow on the Wire, the collections can be read independently. As with Crow on the Wire, The High Lonesome Sound consists of poems in the octet & quatrain forms—themselves very loosely based on the classical Chinese lüshi & jueju. Again like Crow on the Wire, this collection is structured around monthly sequences describing the phases of the moon. The High Lonesome Sound begins with separation & ends with connection. In between we follow the narrator's exploration of the streets & scenes in Portland, with the landscapes he encounters answering an internal call & an internal reality.
