helices, haiku by George Swede $15.00
<strong><i>helices</i></strong>, haiku by <strong>George Swede</strong>

George Swede is one of the most prolific and beloved poets working in haiku today. helices is his 39th volume of poems (the vast majority primarily haiku), and his first collection for Red Moon Press. Using the recurrent metaphor of the helix, that structural arabesque that is central to the functioning of our genetic material, Swede teases out the intricate interconnections of relationships, human and otherwise. In so doing, he also stakes another claim for haiku as a vital contemporary art.

helices received First Prize in the Mildred Kanterman Memorial Merit Book Award Competition, sponsored by the Haiku Society of America, for 2016.

“[His] particular strength is in exploring the mind.” — C. van den Heuvel, New York Times, 1987

unnoticed in the flowerbed bomb’s brain splatter

                    the day begins . . .
                    descendants of dinosaurs
                    darting, singing
