Poetry by Don Colburn. Winner of the 2nd Annual Cider Press Review Book Award, “As if Gravity Were a Theory” is Don Colburn’s first full-length collection of poetry. The book was selected by final contest judge Virgil Suarez.
Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference Director Michael Collier says:
“In As if Gravity Were a Theory, snow falls up, a wrecking ball is a “two-ton teardrop,” and storm-thrashed trees mimic the violence of drowning. Colburn’s poems bring us into contact with the simple magnificence that surrounds us daily. They give us the eyes to peer into the familiar strangeness of experience wherein lies the astonishing invisible world, and for this power we should be deeply and humbly grateful.”
