Our Glorious Lives
Poetry by Eleanor Byers.
This chapbook, printed on a letterpress in 2000, contains twenty-four poems by Ms. Beyer. The first East Point West Press book not written by the printer, this volume explores travel, ageing and loss through the voice of an authentic Pacific Northwest poet. (Out of Print)
From a Hilltop in Granada, Spain
The man goes to stand in front of the clothes
line where red peppers hang
like long crimson pennants, twirling and drying
into sun-withered fire to lend heat
to the sauce of Andaluz sausages. And he
folds his stout arms over his chest. He's a
sultan, a king, a posessor of wealth.
What beauties! these peppers. What treasures!
