About Light on the Concrete:
In his second volume of poetry, American poet Lucas Hunt captures our hunger for happiness at its most intense. These are poems that anticipate love and unveil the primal world of our senses. Light on the Concrete is reminiscent of Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, and Ezra Pound, while echoing such contemporary greats as Richard Wilbur, Timothy Steele, and Thom Gunn. Lucas Hunt’s voice is lyrical, abstract, and fearless. Light on the Concrete presents those moments of beauty and unrest that define our lives.
