The Middle Ages
Jim Daniels, Red Mountain Press (MARCH) Softcover $18.95 (92pp), 978-0-9985140-2-4
Poets and words, a relationship built on endless frustration and betrayal. That’s not what I intended to say. Sorry, bard, that’s what you get with me. Certain poets embrace the ambiguity, as if potential misunderstandings raise a poem’s interest level. Not Jim Daniels. The author of sixteen collections of poetry, five books of fiction, and several film scripts, his deliberate, painstaking prose is as grounded as his native Detroit.

If you’re at home watching a movie on your movie-watching device of choice and somebody calls you up to say they’ve got some bad news and you press pause as the train pulls out of its dreamy station and they tell you someone you love has died, do you ever watch that movie again? And if so, what happens when you reach the part where you paused? Or maybe you should just pick up from that moment? Or should you just leave it there, freezing the train forever in that terrifying green valley?
