CHRIS PUSATERI: MAGNETIC NORTH

In this A6-size 24pp work, 28 haiku are given sensible space to work their charm.

I found this a pleasant pocket collection. The title epitomizes a homing yen from the author, who left Ohio in 1993 for good. Many of these short poems have been published in magazines. My favourites were

	Midwestern spring
	a spider climbs slowly 
	down the calendar

		the pianist's hands
		strike the ivory lightly 
		needles of rain

	neon lights
	reflect in worm wood 
	a blues number
