Bum Town by Tony Fitzpatrick,Stuart Hood



Tony Fitzpatrick’s book-length poem Bum Town is a tough but deeply moving ode to Fitzpatrick’s father and the disappearing Chicago they once knew. From the very first stanza ( From 79th Street/Southworks flexed its/Muscle of light,/An infinite halo/Of orange and white;/Like they had captured/The sun/In four steel wall., Fitzpatrick sets the tone: his poem will not be about the Chicago of skyscrapers and celebrities and victory, but of railroad tracks and steel mills and rubbled lots, of death Tony

Bum Town is Tony Fitzpatrick's allegorical tale of a journey through Chicago with the ghost of his father-revisiting the places that have changed, remembering the uncle who died as a boy trying to hop a freight during the Great Depressions, praising and dispraising a city of dreams and despair. Tony Fitzpatrick's poem is as deeply moving a tribute to a father as I've read in a long time. Tony Fitzpatrick writes poetry like he does everything else-for keeps. His relationship with his world-which is the past, present, and, indeed, the future Chicago-remains passionately and disturbingly real.

In the short and sweet, Mistah Fitz puts a world there before your eyes that exists, existed and will exist again. His Chicago and the one of his father exists and always will, it's changed a bit, but he got the gist of it here as it was, and his art gives the words the framing that a masterpiece requires, to put best though, and in a manner more befitting, this d*mn thing is friggin' awesome!
