9780822963103: Lucky Bones (Pitt Poetry Series)

In Lucky Bones, Peter Meinke moves fluidly through free and formal shapes, taking the reader on a tour through America in the 21st century: family, politics, love, war and peace, old age and death are looked at in ways that are surprising, clear, and warm-hearted. Lit by flashes of anger and laughter as he surveys his territory from the vantage point of old age, the poems are, in the end, both sane and profound, set to Meinke’s own music.
 
Consisting of over sixty new poems, the book begins with a house-shaped poem about a family in a beloved old home, and then moves out into the world with poems about a fire-bug, drive-by shootings, and the often violent human condition before circling back to the home and a final epitaph. A clear-eyed feeling of loss permeates Lucky Bones, but not despair: in the midst of conflict, Meinke’s world is full of wonder, and wonderful people.

Peter Meinke’s Lucky Bones takes you wherever you may be to places you think to experience. Captivating and essential.”
Sue Walker, Poet Laureate of Alabama, 2003-2012

Past praise for Peter Meinke
 
There is a little of the Ancient Mariner in the tenacity and urgency with which Peter Meinke addresses his readers. These poems get hold of us by the coat lapels and when they release us we are delighted, shaken, and considerably wiser.”
Ted Kooser, on Scars

Meinke’s wit is sly, as dry as a good martini.”
Colette Bancroft, on Unheard Music

The authors fourteenth book of verse, it further consolidates his reputation among the best and brightest of our country’s poets.”
Bookshelf, on The Contracted World

Lucky Bones, quantifies the passionate nature of interior intensity and hell-bent fervor by eviscerating a cosen set of targets inhabiting this vale of tears that we call life. Many of his poetic commentaries Meinke delivers in fromalist verse with a cunning dry wit that both elucidates and cautions.”
—Fox Chase Review
