Dennis Bourret’s poetry touches on all of his life experiences, music, war, Americana, and aging. Off Highway 20: and Selected Poems is titled after the first section of the book, which consists of nineteen poems describing the small town and its inhabitants where Dennis grew up. It’s Nebraska Americana. Timing, lyricism, and sagacity are what Dennis brings to his poetry audience. Dennis also brings a unique perspective which drives his subject matter from the heart of America, through the jungles of Vietnam in wartime, through unique observations of daily life and finally to addressing the philosophical realms of existence. His sensitivity, thoughtfulness, wisdom, and musical timing cross every page of his poetry. Dennis is a worthy poet and his words deserve to be read, both widely and enthusiastically.
