Lilliput Review also produces small chapbooks (the same size as their journal) and issue #172 features Ed Markowski’s collection of short poems. I found this collection to be spiritual and simplistic, two words that ought to go hand in hand more often. I will share an equally small sample with you…
the scarecrow’s sutra
I think this sounds lovely when reading and the flow into transformation is pleasant and supernatural just like the Buddha.
i add a few casino chips
to the collection plate
This poem makes me smile. I imagine an eccentric gambler tossing some of his winnings and I can only imagine the look on the face of the person designated to count the offerings.
This one also makes me smile. So many ways you can take this phrase besides “what next?” So versatile in so few lines.
If you enjoyed this little sample of poems, this issue of Ed Markowski’s 15 Poems in issue #172 is a mere $1.00 from Lilliput Review at:
