45th Reunion Redbook Rubrics
i. My boys got a measly sentence; the Greatest Gen garnered fawning praise:
Editor's Note: This is one of the most powerful poems that I have ever read. I've read comparable poetry in high-end mainstream serials such as Poetry Magazine, American Poetry Review, and Boulevard. The revelation that it is a "found" poem is simply mind-blowing. Dr. Sarnat has extracted the poetry from a mundane source and really made it sing, manipulating the time stream as a professional pianist manipulates the keys.
"45th Reunion Redbook Rubrics" first appeared in Dr. Sarnat's third collection, 17s (2014), in which each poem, stanza or line has seventeen syllables. The poem was reprinted in the November 2014 issue of Songs of Eretz Poetry E-zine.
