Bizarre job opportunities. A robot poet. A flashback to the Sixties. Within the cornucopia that is Strange Vegetables you will find these and other speculations on things scientific and fantastical, real and surreal, complete with a special garnish here and there to illuminate a poem. With brevity, wit, and a dash of the surreal, the poems in G.O. Clark’s Strange Vegetables serve up snapshots of diverse speculative scenarios — at times profound in their insight, often strange in their imagination, always entertaining! – Bruce Boston, Bram Stoker Award author of Pitchblende and Shades Fantastic I’ve enjoyed Clark’s amazing poetry for over a decade, and this collection holds some of my top favorites and many new ones. These poems are all Strange Vegetables, diverse morsels, dark and light from Clark’s personal garden of verse. – Marge Simon, Bram Stoker Award winning poet, Vectors, A week in the Death of a Planet. Strange Vegetables is a wok full of steamed whimsy. Venerable poet G.O. Clark’s playful verse induces a smile on every page, punctuated with the occasional shock of melancholy recognition or an urgent, earnest tug on the heartstrings. – Mike Allen, award winning author of The Journey to Kailash. Strange Vegetables contains 31 poems, many previously published in various periodicals. I published 1 or 2 in Dreams and Nightmares. The cover is an amusing tribute to ‘American Gothic’ with some Vegetables that aren’t strange at all and a little flower power thrown in. Oh, and I didn’t know Clark could draw. He is pretty good. He doesn’t draw for the small press as far as I know, except here. G. O. Clark frequently uses a deadpan style when describing far out situations, as in the title poem or ‘Unusual employment opportunities.’ The style is well suited to dry humor, and the poems almost feel like dry humor even when they really aren’t funny. For example, ‘As if we could change anything.’ Clark never seems to run out of this kind of zinger. Poems range from the silly, to serious with and without puns, to sharp as knives.
