As author Tim Mayo grasps the trapeze bar and prepares to take flight, we're proud to announce the publication of his new book of poems, Thesaurus of Separation, on this beautiful midsummer day of July 1, 2016. Congratulations, Tim! We're all cheering for you, but no longer holding our breath: the books are available (both in a lovely paperback edition and as a downloadable .pdf) and ready to fly into the hands of readers. Please take a look! For a limited time, we're offering a 15% discount on paperback orders through our online store.
Now in my mid-sixties, my blond hair silvering
at the temples like little wings, I’ve taken up flying.
It happens in a farmer’s field, hidden
from the road, on Sunday afternoons,
the New England summer sun frowning down
like a Puritan as we gather, coven-like, to practice.
Think of it as a post-modern meditation
on getting to heaven.
from "Trapezing in God's Country," by Tim Mayo, (c)2016
New England readers will have several chances to meet Tim and hear him present his poems this summer - the first of these will be at Bookstock, in Woodstock, Vermont, on Friday, July 29 at 1:00 pm, when he'll be reading with Vermont Poet Laureate Chard deNiord at the Unitarian Universalist Church. We'll keep you posted on Tim's schedule.
