The store looked closed for years. I lost my way there once In a Sunday kind of quiet, Sunday kind of afternoon light On a street of red-brick tenements ow do you like that? I said it again. I lost my way there once In a Sunday kind of quiet, Sunday kind of afternoon light On a street of red-brick tenements ow do you like that? I said it again today upon waking. That street went on forever And all along I could feel the pins In my back, prickling The dark and heavy cloth. St. Thomas Aquinas I left parts of myself everywhere The way absent-minded people leave Gloves and umbrellas Whose colors are sad from dispensing so much bad luck. I was on a park bench asleep

Over the past few years, sensing that perhaps I had given poetry short shrift, I have been reading a book of poems every month or so. With a better grounding, I decided to re-visit E. E. Cummings.

Fearless Fred by Dorsey Baker. Fearless Fredthe motorcyclistlike a wild stallion. Fearless Fred the motorcyclist like a wild stallion the front of his bike lifted and snorting loudly the motorcyclist feet hanging out like eagle wings spread in flight floating on his ego high spirited and fancy free the wind the cyclist and his bike entangled each other in an embrace its empowering to ride upon an empty road all alone. Topic(s) of this poem: life. Poems by Dorsey Baker : 719, 2598.

Fred Beake has been writing since the late Sixties, and this New and Selected provides a much needed overview of a constantly developing body of work. About a third of the book is given over to the very fresh and colourful poems that have been written since he moved to South Devon in 2003. Beake has maintained an interest throughout his career in the short, often very visual lyric; but has also written offbeat fictions around particular characters, and very musical longer pieces such as 'Marona' and 'Towards the West' that reflect (if at a distance) the poet's early interest in the French Surrealists. This is an unusual poetry, and hard to place in terms of the modern scene. It occupies a position that is equidistant between the Imagists and Objectivists, the Surrealists, and much older things.
