“Tourists and Cannibals” provides a dozen memorable poems on travel by some of the most skillful, witty and highly praised poets writing today. It gives a delight-hearted review of the varieties of travel experience, good and bad, that are available to us all, whether youths or seniors.
The “Potcake Chapbook” series is named for the dogs of the Bahamas and the Caribbean – strays that live off the burnt scrapings of cooking pots. The poems in the series are a mixed bunch – but the potcake of our logo wears a bow tie to show that he and all the poems are formal. These poems are memorable in part because they rhyme and scan, as all truly memorable poetry does. We subscribe to the use of form, no matter how formless the times in which we live.
