Editorial Reviews


Scenes the Writer Shows
by MB Moshe
reviewed by John E. Roper
"Clinging to my backpack,
I walked the deadened streets.
Waiting for a happy face,
Or ground to chain my feet."

 "While frequently choosing to rely on common patterns of meter, rhyme, and stanza structure, he occasionally veers away from established patterns to chart his own course.
Offering snapshots of his life, the lives of others, and of the many places he has journeyed to, Moshe has cobbled together a collection that reads at times like a confessional and at others like a poetic travelogue."
  __U.S Review of Books

"Moshe uses rhyme and verse to convey the feel, the sight and the sound of the places he has been to, the people he met in the course of his life, how they inspired him, how he saw them and how they perceived him in turn. Readers will be treated to 41 concise poems of contrasts and wonders, of places and scenes as seen by a writer, and portrayed through the art of the eye, the heart and the mind."
___July 2013 press release

From the Author

I thought I had a voice as a poet. I'd filled notebooks in college with poems that were embryonic. I matured and regained my fetal position in dimly lit rooms and corner bar stools. I wrote my best...I wrote my best...I wrote my heart and left a tip to be squandered less. Poems I collected from 2011-12 were honest. They were confessional poems regarding work, relationships, travel, and my experience of being disabled. Scenes the Writer Shows {forty-one places a poem can go} looks on a life of victories and upsets.
In late 2012, the year I left my career in medical records, I sat down to put this offering together. Forty-one was a random number of no significance. The title plays with the prosaic catch-phrase "show don't tell." As my foray into collected poetry, what I researched and gathered from fellow poets was that a book should have a loose central theme. To that end, the poems in Scenes all convey a geographical or personal location. Its pages are steeped in terrain and emotion. Poems read in anger or wonderment. They lie in sand or tall grass hiding sarcasm or casting conundrums. I was the urban poet at times, observing the rich tapestry of the "drug free" zones of Minneapolis's Stevens Community poverty.
