    I haven't read all of James Lee Jobe's poems yet, but enough to know I've found a poet who paints pictures that I can instantly and clearly see, and that are worth seeing! That's quite a talent. I've also discovered-one example is the poem 'Coexistence'-how James effortlessly makes a poem work on both a mundane and a mythic level-wonderful because our lives are like that, too.
    I look forward to reading more of James' work.

Best Poem of James Lee Jobe

Driving Through Downtown Sacramento At 3 A.M. Thinking About Our Poems

The city is shivering, empty,
and looks like a model
of another city far away;
somewhere we will never go.

Rainy streets slip by, lights
flash yellow; caution! The river
is black, dimpled, and we ask -
What is this Forever anyway?

But the river doesn't answer,
and the city doesn't answer -
all of this is in our head.
All of this is in our poem.
