Sweet Spot
J. T. Barbarese

Goddesses and junkies, the Vietnam memorial and a neighborhood hangout are the coordinates of J. T. Barbarese’s Sweet Spot. His poems explore the emotional centers of whatever is fleeting in characters or places that will be instantly familiar to the reader. Barbarese masterfully evokes the specific land- and cityscapes of his poems. Sweet Spot confirms Barbarese’s preeminence as a chronicler of the heroic everyday, the telling detail, the subtle reminders of the human predicament hidden in habit and memory.
