Press Release: “Encircle,” by upcoming “Featured Poet” John Reinhart was released today by Prolific Press.
John is going to be featured on our site August 6, 2016. But, you don’t have to wait three more days to buy his new chapbook Encircled for just $7.50.
Reinhart has dedicated the 24 poems in “encircled” to all the people who encircle him, especially his wife, children, and the spark of recognition we share when we shake a stranger’s hand. These narrative poems focus on his family, but also his friends, colleagues, neighbors, and students – the folks who make up his community. The poems range from short and humorous reflections on his daughter using the urinal at the amusement park, to ponderous soul searching about the child who died under suspicious circumstances across the street, the stories of dreams and loss, simple waves and deep connections that make up each of our daily lives.
