broken bottle of time

by John Reinhart



Reinhart burst on the speculative poetry scene fairly recently, and what an explosion of talent! Herein you’ll find a fine mix of sf/f/h and speculative poems. It’s the stuff that makes you squirm or smile or pause to think. His is a mind that takes on all kinds of challenges and serves up some exceptional work such as:


rebooting


nothing like a tunnel/I do see the light/ it’s flashing


The last section is my favorite, with its uniquely surreal take on time passages. It totally blew me away.


- Marge Simon, Bram Stoker Award® winner, Grand Master Poet, SFPA
