“The Perfect Vandals”…but of the mind and the heart.
A farm hidden by the sprawling apple orchard,
the Champs-Elysees at the start of the night,
the sound of the bat striking the ball and April
full of catfish under the wayward bridge, the blending
of the concrete and the stars, the planets of the cities beaming.
Tim Suermondt has published two full-length books of poems:
TRYING TO HELP THE ELEPHANT MAN DANCE (The Backwaters Press, 2007)
and JUST BEAUTIFUL (New York Quarterly Books, 2010). After many years
in Brooklyn and Queens, he now lives in Cambridge with his wife,
the poet Pui Ying Wong.
