Two Blind Pigeons
I’m not usually one for poetry, but Joe Pernice’s Two Blind Pigeons is really something. Not exclusively verse, there’s a fair bit of prose in the form of short vignettes, this work shows he’s a truly evocative writer no matter what medium he’s working in. The themes are classic Pernice – melancholy and the lives ordinary folks struggling under the weight of day-to-day existance. It’s a brief read, barely 40 pages, but Pernice manages to convey a world of emotion with an economy of words.
