George Bilgere's new collection of poetry, Imperial, just got a review by John Freeman in the Plain Dealer.
"Bilgere, who teaches at John Carroll University, is a companionable
guide to what he calls, a little obviously, 'the shared mystery / of
being human.' His lines possess the easy, colloquial rhythm of prose
and the imagist glint of good poetry.
He recalls 'the dark mouths of garages' in his childhood St. Louis, lobsters’ 'steaming vaults / ready to be plundered.'"
