In Shorter Prose poet M Sarki yeah that one; many of you know him draws on small town life in Tawas City and East Tawas Michigan and memories of mid twentieth century small town life amid characters who seem to know everyone in the sense that ‘everyone’ means ‘each other’ Having myself grown up in a village near a small town where we were all bussed off to school the stories provoke a similar lovehate nostalgia for that simpler life and that simpler period That is not to say that the stories in Shorter Prose are historical fiction—they’re not—it is to say that memories reside with us no matter how we might try to shake them or how far from our origins we might travelIn Ponzil the Pistolero and His Comedy of Combustion Ponzil the narrator euates being ‘stupid’ which he hears he is from townspeople and his father with being ‘thin skinned’ which was presumably avowed by the doctor who delivered him Told at what feels a breakneck pace Ponzil confuses facts from his past cites important philosophers and following an incident in a bar reference to two notorious murderers and the apposition in the title this reader began to suspect something sinister ominous—but I wouldn’t want to provide a spoiler and I definitely wouldn’t want to affirm the conseuentWith A Different World than Olive Listed a boy’s memories of being bullied and sense of isolation lead to other relationships as memorable and in Max Lane memories of a small town immigrant a memory not uncommon to those of us of a certain age and rural origin ignite our own memories of those odd characters from our youth—that old man and woman with their accents and still alien traits their otherworldliness their othernessEach of these pieces I hesitate using ‘stories’ deal with memories the ways memories endure I’m reluctant to call them stories in that they seem than that—they are stories but they’re successful stories because of the Voice with which they’re told They work at the level of narration It’s exactly that Voice which prevents they’re being told another way In the best writing Milton’s right words in the right order are part and parcel of that sense of voice we readers expectthat sense of right words in the right order often best accomplished by a poet 45 stars rounded up not only for the writing but in anticipation of the 5 I’ll be able to give to More Shorter Prose when it appears
