Dreaming in the Bone Boat

In Dreaming in the Bone Boat, Raymond Moose Jackson maps his worlds and roles. Anchored in New Orleans but wide-ranging, these poems chart the course of a rowdy pilgrim at the crossroads of blue-collar doldrums, punk epiphanies and the disappearing wetlands of dream. Jackson is a lyrical voyager walking a rebel road to end up wild-eyed in the fields of human compassion [feeling?], and we are along for the ride. With phrasings that land with the musical smack of destiny, Moose restores us to a living world where the mundane is magical and all of life is celebrated.
