The Holy Ranger Poems

On amazon.com, in reference to THE HOLY RANGER: HARLEY-DAVIDSON POEMS by Dr. Martin Jack Rosenblum, a reader from Florida wrote a Customer Review that gave the book's Ranger Evopoetic Poetry a Five-Star rating, which is the highest. Here is that unsolicited Review:

"Martin Jack Rosenblum in this collection conveys the thrill of owning and riding the pride of America - the Harley-Davidson. The reader also gets a glimpse of a childhood and a life in America's heartland, and frequently draws parallels between the modern biker and the horsemen of the old west. In the past, Harley lovers have fallen back on the old saw, "If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand" as a way to avoid putting words to something embraced so passionately".
Now they can say "Read Rosenblum; he explains ... and you will understand!"

Joining

as when
meeting
it gets
this
pioneer/inversion
which is
that snow
upon edge
, unfrozen
: we never doubt
it will melt
nor do we fear
gardens will feed
us serpents any-
more/than

keeping loved ones
together it is the same
bond that kept the rage

vicious then a ceremonious
parting to enhance civilization
leaving her at the sink & he drove

their old Buick
into the leafpile
while their hall lights
protected the neighbors.


Air Pirate Disposal Memo

the sign on the U.S. Air jetliner
toilet said: DO NOT THROW FOREIGN
OBJECTS IN HERE.
THANK YOU.
hell, I had figured that hole
to be a good place to toss
any terrorists on board.
BUT YOU'RE WELCOME.


Here Goes Proper Country Picking

this Gibson ES-335 resonates through
its cherry top as the Hubbard Park
tunnel flattered my sidecut pipes
& with a slide down the neck
& around a fast curve
hands in gauntlets
& engineer boot
down for one
but just fingerpicks
yet the same boot down
for the other: combine this Delta beat
& that acoustic
tunnel rasp for
proper country music
picking Milwaukee
style when the heart's
kickstarter blues goes
.
