The Broken Night by Bruce Arlen Wasserman

The Broken Night by Bruce Arlen Wasserman

In The Broken Night, poet Bruce Wasserman explores touchpoints of the little known and the unknown in conversations with the dead and a roll call of the living, to squeeze out the vibrant essence found within every word. A literary critic for the New York Journal of Books, Wasserman presents a mix of long-a 20-page poem in 13 parts-and shorter format poems ranging from such topics as delivering a breech calf by moonlight in remote rural Minnesota to factory farmed chicken eggs and the consequences for the chickens, from an esoteric view of a 1934 Farmall tractor to an elegy inspired by drifting snowflakes, from wartime dentistry on the front lines in a tent clinic to his grandmother’s Yiddish sayings with an application for every aspect of life.
