"Deep, wise and beautiful ... Charles Coe gives poetry readers many fine examples of an old, worthy craft. A volume for the permanent shelf!" -- Small Press Review, May-June, 1999
From the Publisher
Charles Coe's poems are warm and robust, well constructed and considered. In all of them you feel an insistent and pervasive humanity, and news from the singing and stubborn heart. Coe's poems contain quirky angles of observation, painful splinters of truth, insightful humor, and the salt and sweetness of daily life lived by a compassionate and passionate Black poet-man moving deftly through the absurdities of urban America today.

Don't be sad when we climb into the shuttle
for the trip home.
For we each carry back
a cool and quiet place within ourselves.
The poems in this collection bring the reader to this "cool and quiet place", and in giving voice to the darknesses of life, the poet also lights the way to hope. Picnic on the Moon is a beautiful work and a meaningful companion for life's journey.
