Item description for Traveling at High Speeds (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by John Rybicki...

2nd Expanded Edition

Foreword by Rick Bass

The kinetic energy of John Rybicki's poems is his unmistakable signature. His poem "Traveling at High Speeds" opens with the lines, "Some night my body takes the shape of this city." That urban shape is the shape of John Rybicki's poetry as well. The city in question is, of course, Detroit, but whether Detroit itself is the subject---as it is in many of his poems---or not, the cadence of its streets informs the slashing attack of Rybicki's vivid language.

Reviews - What do customers think about Traveling at High Speeds (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?

Everything you need  May 31, 2001
Rybicki is a god. There is nothing else to say. His poems are modern, so be prepared - he does things with language that are beautiful and spectacualar and terrifying and enthralling. If you have been taught by this man, they you know that there are no words. Except, perhaps, that the two-headed monster has a lot to teach you. Rybicki is one head. For the other head, go find Pete Markus' books. Buy these together, read, add tears, stir.
A City-Boy Does It Big  May 15, 1999
There is no real way to review this book without sounding like a fanatic, or to tell you to buy it without making you feel ashamed at not having done so yet. It cuts my breath short to think of ever living without having read this book, so great is the energy I pull from the words. I carry this book with me on long trips, from fear that I might die without having Rybicki's words nearby.
