Drive the World in a Taxicab

Drive the World in a Taxicab

by John Milkereit

With his own intrepid sense of color, John Milkereit summons magic from the ubiquitous and the mundane. He introduces us to prophets and angels who drive taxicabs. This is poetry that compels us to surrender to our own imaginations. Deftly walking a tightrope between comedy and tragedy, Milkereit’s performance delights and inspires. His work makes us laugh, even as it provides solace from our longing. We are reminded that, in spite of lost love, global strife, and disenchantment, magic and color prevail.
