The City Skit
by C.R. Hoffmeister
The poems of The City Skit dress familiar themes in language rich with urban landscapes, autumn rains, the cymbal brush of city breeze, and the early morning smell of asphalt in spring. The humid hearts of summer and frosty solitude of downtown winters make appearances in pieces like “farewells” and “pieces of autumn.” Street lamp oases draw of the distant sea to keep hope alive.
