Are all themes an obsession? Is this a rhetorical question? 50 Barn Poems by Zac Smith and CLASH Books, is an original Beat Poetry
offering, presenting a humorous surreal fascination with barns, from Generation "Y". Zac Smith lives in Boston and "likes to walk
his dogs." His stories and poems are largely published online. 50 Barn Poems is his first published book.
Spellbound. A satirical allurement with the broken, the haunted social scene, haunted barns go up in flames, twirl in the air, float in the ocean in a riveting worship of the dark, cold mystery pavilion of farmyards everywhere. A Beat Poetry progression with a truncated mix of street narrative, dark humor and a certain profound surrealism that makes this a great read, at once setting your teeth on edge, you laugh quietly. A mix of humor with a learned intelligence, Smith could be the Richard Brautigan of the New Age.
"BARN POEM 10
we all belong to a barn somewhere -
there is no escape"
"BARN POEM 12
barn on wheels
cruisin' down the highway
and sandy shores
barn in the air
a slow twirl toward the sea"
A mad, fun sendup, truly a great first oeuvre, we look for more from this Poet, 50 Barn Poems by Zac Smith.
