A Cul-de-Sac Off of Main Street
While reading A Cul-de-Sac Off of Main Street by Peter V. Dugan I was drawn in by the brilliance of his work. Peter uses laymen‚ s terms, everyday language, and yet his poems are elevated, and they elevate us, those that read his powerful work. Throuthout the book I am riding with the poet as he shows me so much of the stuff that makes up what we call life. We are given a personal tour, which says; ‚ Hey, take a look, you don‚ t want to miss this!‚ As I place the book down I feel grateful for the experience Peter has given me; the ability to safeful view what he has seen and then go back to my nine-to-five life, and yet I am left with a twinge of sadness that somewhere, back there in my own past, I may have left the best part of me.Tammy Nuzzo-Morgan Suffolk County Poet Laureate 2009-2011
