It's Okay. He's American. by Arnie Yasinski
Third collection. Arnie Yasinski knows his difference is noticed when he opens his mouth to speak in Ireland; sees how the stasis of Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot’ is everywhere, knows how darkness can be camouflaged, how the Irish avoid pain by averting their eyes from the abyss. First two collections — Proposition; God Lives in Norway and Goes by Christie.
Only after years do I learn
that under the thin skin of her civility
are murky depths of Athlone, Cork.
