Synopsis

p>Cows on the Freeway is a collection of poems inspired by the ocean and freeways of Southern California. These poems were polished in performances on stages as diverse as Lollapalooza, The Whiskey, National Poetry Slams, and coffeehouse open mikes. They combine a sharp critique of modern life with an absurd sense of humor.

"It's all Murray: dry humor, charm, a big heart—with a little cynical edge to it. He gets his point across with a little ambiguity, but he doesn't push it in your face." —Pat Cohee, The Inevitable Press

"At first glance, G. Murray Thomas's poetry is simplistic—even prosaic—but don't be fooled. Whether he's remarking on women washing their clothes in sinks, or cows wandering blithely onto the freeways, Thomas focuses in on the tiny moments that provide character and flavor to what is otherwise an incomprehensible wash development and advertising." —Victor D. Infante, journalist and poet
