In “Sequence,” J. D. Smith offers a startling contrast of nightmarish images—an animal lured for an empty sacrifice and a watery attempt to escape from one’s self.
J. D. Smith has two books forthcoming in 2012: a humor collection and his third collection of poetry, Labor Day at Venice Beach. Awarded a fellowship in poetry from the United States National Endowment for the Arts in 2007, Smith has also published an essay collection, Dowsing and Science (2011), and a children's book, The Best Mariachi in the World (2008).
