Beneath the Horse’s Eye
Poems by Dale Jacobs

Dale Jacobs writes a poetry of the real: his father’s old catcher’s mitt, the burnished stock of a shotgun, rainy Edmonton nights, Rick Monday’s heartbreaking homer against the Expos, Bev Munroe on CFCW, the cup of too-sweet coffee. His is both a lived and a lived-in poetry, meditative, its gentle voice filled nevertheless with urgency savoring each finely-imaged moment, thirsting for the new, reclaiming the past that is always slipping from view. Sharply detailed and deeply felt, these poems live on in the reading, their afterimages remaining long after we put the book down.
