Description: Day of the Speckled Trout is Mark Jodon’s first full length manuscript of poetry. The poems in this collection will remind you of places you’ve been and those you long to visit. They will take you to “where water turns to wine,” where “birds in the branches sing in the snow,” and where “there is a chorus of angels singing your name.” These poems witness how we walk together while taking different paths. Come, enjoy these poems and see how many times your paths crisscross with these poems.
