|The Gettysburg Undress: Poems from Gettysburg, PA, Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, Baltimore, MD., and environs
“Rick Lupert’s The Gettysberg Undress is a delightful romp through the museums and tourist attractions of the mid-Atlantic States. I found it more believable than Steinbeck’s Travels with Charlie. His wife, Addie, is a more interesting personality by far than a poodle. His observations are written in a minimalist style which is a cross between Basho and Brautigan. Each poem is a tiny masterpiece. Some poems, like “Animal Hospital,” strike a ghostly chord. His humor is inclusive, making the reader part of the mission – to bring the fun back to poetry by entertaining the heck out of you, plus making you think about the world.”
~ Hal Sirowitz, former Poet Laureate of Queens, New York, Author “Mother Said”
I’m very excited to have joined the Rothco Press family with the very first title in their Caffeine Poetry Series, and my sixteenth collection of poetry, written on location while traveling through the sites, museums and restaurants of the cradle of the Civil War.
