READING WIDELY – “The Salty River Bleeds” and others by Dr. J.i

In The Salty River Bleeds, Stephen Page writes about place, nature, and people in poems that pack images, whether written in couplets or free verse. Even when writing about the earth, Page includes a mythic quality in his writing.
There are many notable entries here, but I will mention a few: 
“Jonathan Goes to Search for It at Sunset” leads the collection strongly and hints at that combination of earthy writing that winks at mythology.
“Dear Nephew” and “Dear Father” are epistolary but function as poems. I love the combination of these forms.
“Tattler” combines elements of poetry and prose. Again, I appreciate the mingling of forms.
“On a Winter Walk” shows what the poet can do with only four short lines.
Sometimes ethereal, other times visceral, there is much to appreciate in Page’s work.

Paranoia and Paradise Both Reside in Stephen Page’s Newest Collection

Stephen Page’s tall tale inspired poetry is back with more dream like language and tension than ever in The Salty River Bleeds. It is full of descriptions of hard farm life, daydreams and countless moments of human failings. Although this most recent collection, which will be released later this year, is a continuation of Jonathan the rancher’s story, the poetry also sows new characters into the readers’ imaginations and harvests tantalizing, rich details about old familiar faces.

One such new character actually emerges at the onset of the book. His name is Obligation. And although the poem is only four lines long, Page uses each word to the fullest. The end result of this skillful word carving is quite a captivating silhouette of this fellow. Readers will be able to envision Obligation in the corner of their eye as…
