About the Poems
by Bruce Covey
I believe these poems are reaching, attempting to celebrate the mysterious & magnificent something that's always beyond one's extended & stretching fingers. The space between what's "true" & what might have been. "Tetrina" is a shortened sestina. "The Different Between Toggle Bolts and Molly Screws" came from a challenge to write a poem centered around a piece of hardware. "Soda Pop Girl" incorporates several found texts from the web.
