    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.

It's mid-winter and the sunrise knows it, and wakes me
with a shudder; I'm just a man.

For 5 cold mornings in a row, the beautiful pheasant
has come to our patio to steal some of the dry catfood,
sometimes right in front of my cat.

The house is still, and I enjoy the Sunday newspaper
with strong, dark coffee; the smell of it dances
