10 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
<Div>Although <i>The Night Train and the Golden Bird</i> is Peter Meinke's first poetry collection, it is a seasoned performance-the result of careful deliberation and mature judgment-yet impetuous and exciting. It's full of wit and humor tempered with the sadness of approaching middle-age, anguish over political and social injustice, and of the very failings of everyday people and their lives.</div>

Lucky bones by Peter Meinke( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 121 libraries worldwide
In Lucky Bones, Peter Meinke moves fluidly through free and formal shapes, taking the reader on a tour through America in the 21st century: family, politics, love, war and peace, old age and death are looked at in ways that are surprising, clear, and warm-hearted. Lit by flashes of anger and laughter as he surveys his territory from the vantage point of old age, the poems are, in the end, both sane and profound, set to Meinke's own music. Consisting of over sixty new poems, the book begins with a house-shaped poem about a family in a beloved old home, and then moves out into the world with poems about a fire-bug, drive-by shootings, and the often violent human condition before circling back to the home and a final epitaph. A clear-eyed feeling of loss permeates Lucky Bones, but not despair: in the midst of conflict, Meinke's world is full of wonder, and wonderful people
