The poems of Brian Dickson’s new chapbook take us deep into the Gulf with poems so “Awash with images” we begin to feel our feet, then ankles, then thighs pulled by the tide. Here are “Catfish [that] bait the shore, limitless / in their mud-glint,” the “rumble of front loaders from a fisher’s path,” and with Dickson’s wry humor—in “Hassle at the Road Haus” servers cooing “Sweety pie” and “sweet thang” wearing “Name tags buttered for life.” Always subtle, and yet piercing as the mosquito in “A Mosquito Pierces Our Hearts,” these are poems we want to read and reread as they become “rooted, in us.”
