with the patience of silence – blurbs

random blurbage

“Jack Henry’s poetry proves that Beat Poets are not just myths from the past, but living and writing among us still. His poems face truth head on with no apologies, no backward glance. Jack Henry will challenge your preconceptions of life, love, sex, and the pursuit of what you think is happiness. Buy his books or buy him beer – either way, you are in for a grand ride!”

“Jack Henry marches across the desert with one eye on the ground and one on the Beat heavens, unafraid of his own pain or humiliation, fearful for our communal future. Continuing the great tradition of American poetry that runs from Whitman through McKay and Ginsberg and Bukowski, he prefers the raw to the cooked, the unborn to the dead, and roads with little signage.”
