Stuart Dybeck

Stuart Dybeck is a legendary short story teller. In his poems he references his native Chicago, for irony to show the street life and help you capture an image of what he is speaking.


A man steps out of sunlight,

Sunlight that streams like grace,

Still gaping at the blue sky

stacked across the emptiness of space,

into a history where shadows

assume a hidden face.

A man slips into silence

that begins as a cry,

Still trailing music

although reduced to the sigh

of an accordion

as it fold into its case.
