Hard Work in Low Places

by Stephen Lewandowski


Through the journey that is Hard Work in Low Places it becomes clear that the taut,
spare lines of Lewandowski’s poems describe/contain the measure of the place and
memory, the cadence of a walk across it, the clipped, clear pacing of conversation,
and the thoughtful process of exploration/discovery, all born of being grounded.

–Jim LaVilla-Havelin, author of West: Poems of a Place
