Cuttings from the Tangle
For nearly three decades, Richard Buckner has been traveling the byways of America, often alone and with little more than his guitars and notebooks. Now he's sharing what he saw, felt, and found.Long admired for his impressionistic and elliptical lyrics, Richard Buckner has more recently found himself pulling off the road to furiously write longer, fuller pieces. Here is a collection of his story-like poems gathered by haunting the fringes of America: lingering in dive bars and greasy spoon diners, passing sleepless nights in seedy motels. With titles such as "One More Last One," "Everyone is driven unknowingly to their urges," and simply "Work," these are Buckner's unique and singular reports from a visionary road.
