    Larry Kimmel's poems are very very beautiful. I'm into Imagist poetry, and he writes it so well. Very subtle, very clever, the words not intrusions, not pinpointing to meanings, but expressions. Very impressionistic pieces, and very much a joy to read, and reread. BWF.

beneath the winter-prophesying sky,
before night's shadow gathers the last straws
of afternoon to its scrawny breast;
the sun on a red barn, dying,
resurrects a lone child, playing.
