The inspirations for his poems range from the darkness of dreams to the wonders of day. Tyndall imagines what happens when you invite Death to dinner and reveals where you can find the bones of a tornado. Jaguars play with children and the moon takes a dip in the St. Claire River. Praised by the University of Toronto Quarterly for his strange iridescent language, Tyndall gives his poetry free rein in a world of mystery and joy.A previous book, Howlcat Fugues, was chosen by Library Journal as one of the ten best small-press poetry books of 1976, citing it as a surrealistic pattern of poetry and art. John Tyndalls poems have appeared in the anthologies That Sign of Perfection, Losers First, I Want to Be the Poet of Your Kneecaps, Henrys Creature, and Following the Plough. Free Rein is his first book for Black Moss Press.
