The Spider Sermons Robert Krut BlazeVOX [books]

Robert Krut's new collection of poems, The Spider Sermons, bears lyric exactness and compassion into a new world of memory crossed with most things existential.  There is a sense of what is being seen here as with after images in an electrical storm. This is a brilliant book. 

—Norman Dubie

These poems weave the urbane twists of highways and skyscrapers with the turns and foibles of love. Robert Krut delivers a precipice city, a galactic (but not preachy) spider, a narrator who sometimes wears a sandwich board.  In a world where “everything is becoming something else and drifting apart,” he praises the quirky tenacity of the imagination. 

—Laurie Kutchins

With a winning mixture of verve and tenderness, the poems in The Spider Sermons confront the extreme significance of our daily lives. It's the most passionate of come-ons, but with the kindest of intentions.

—Kazim Ali
