By Jacqueline Allen Trimble

American Happiness is an eclectic number of verse from a daring poet of way of life, Jacqueline Allen Trimble. paradoxically titled, the paintings addresses every little thing from the dying of oldsters to racial rigidity to the encroachment of coyotes into city spaces.

The name is taken from a poem within the e-book which considers the kinder, gentler exploits of Sheriff Andy and Deputy Barney in the course of a time whilst Southern legislations enforcement used to be neither universally sort or mild. Says Trimble, “Barney had one bullet/and no use for a rope./The merely burning he did was once for his Thelma Lou.”

On her poetic trip, which takes us from the non-public to the political, Trimble probes our racial divide. She is by way of turns compassionate and fierce, slicing at our hypocrisy with the knife of her phrases and prepared us towards our higher universal humanity.
