Ed Bremson spends a lot of time in shopping malls. Many days of the year, when the weather is not particularly nice, he goes there and walks for an hour. While he is walking he keeps all his senses open for ideas he can use to write poems or haiku. In fact, one of his college professors once called Ed "the Walt Whitman of the mall" because of all the mall poetry he wrote for class. Poet in the Mall is the result of all that time spent walking, observing, sweating, freezing, and writing. Dedicated to Federico Garcia Lorca, and somewhat reminiscent of his Poet in New York, it contains various poems, many haiku, and an abundance of images. We are all familiar with modern shopping malls, but after reading this book, and reflecting on the observations contained therein, we may never look at the mall in the same way again.
