Shirts or Skins by Jim Redmond

Winner of the 2014 Heavy Feather Poetry Chapbook Award judged by Noah Eli Gordon, author of The Word Kingdom in the Word Kingdom:

“Jim Redmond’s poems are situated between the palm at the end of the mind and the parking lot of a now-gutted Midwestern Denny’s. Like the twisted portraiture of Francis Bacon or the whiskey-soaked lyrics of Tom Waits, Redmond’s poems revel in those dark, dank corners of our lives, the same ones that paradoxically, ultimately, and bravely reveal the most light. And such gritty and raw illumination also glints with the stuff of mystery—the estranging wonder that allows us, no matter the situation, to see the world anew.”
