Urban Junkstar by Leslie Reese


“… Attuned to the sounds and silences in the rural landscape and to the intensity and sophistication of urbanity, Reese’s imaginary instigates internal tensions and ambiguities enhanced by shades and halftones.”

urban junkstar

in many of the cement courtyards
and flower gardens dipped in palettes of red
there is a keenness in the hearts of the people
something rubbed with equal parts of desperation and pride

i, too, have been carved and smoothed
by the hard winters and broken promises now the view of that
murdered landscape fills me
with emotion
